Post evaluation, SPNI decides to shut down 3 premium HD channels
Sony Pictures Networks India has announced that three of their premium HD channels, Sony Le Plex HD, Sony Rox HD, Sony Ten Golf HD have been removed from DTH service providers and cable TV platforms effective immediately. The reason the broadcaster cited for the removal of these channels was that they had niche and dispersed viewership. However, the broadcaster has stated that the programming for the aforementioned channels will be continued on their other channel offerings.
Sony Le Plex HD was a premium English movie channel aimed at movie buffs. Sony Rox HD was a premium Youth oriented channel. Sony Ten Golf HD was the only sports channel that covered Golf in India.
