TopTV is dead. Long live StarSat!

On Digital Media (ODM) announced at a media briefing on Thursday, 31 October 2013, that it will relaunch its pay TV satellite offering as “StarSat”.

Previously called TopTV, subscribers reported that the broadcaster has been testing the new StarSat branding for weeks.

ODM said that it is in the process of concluding the implementation of its business rescue plan. According to ODM, the plan was voted on and adopted by its creditors and shareholders on 30 April 2013.

“This is a legally binding process that allows for the company to continue to operate in the normal cause of business and to be restructured within the protective bubble of business rescue as per Chapter 6 of the Companies Act,” ODM said in a press statement issued at the launch.

StarSat will introduce a range of new packages, channels, and pricing structures which will be available to subscribers from 1 December 2013, ODM promised.
