Why does the content of E! and Cartoon Network seem so poor?

Posted on June 6, 2011

Well, despite what might be advertised to, and expected by us, the customer,  the Cartoon Network and E! channels are not the full channels you see on dstv. They are a “dumbed down” version on a 2 hour repeat cycle of week old stuff. Don’t expect the real thing.

To quote from a DSTV spokesman “Note that E! & CN’s content is customised for the mobile environment and unlike the rest of the channels, content on these 2 channels is not the same as content on “normal” DStv. On mobile, E! & CN’s content is meant to repeat 4-5 different clips within a 2 hour loop and also it’s content that played out last week (one weeks old content). ”

And in response to a question on false advertising around it not being the full channels :

” We will escalate the matter in regards with advertising to Marketing and investigate accordingly. For information on DStv Mobile products and the riveting content available, please visit our website.”

Um ya right. Ok then.
