There will be less programs to watch on TV soon as Disney plans to shut down most of their channels in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. This involves plenty of channels, some of which you might not even be aware of.

According to details stemming from a recent town hall meeting, Disney will be shutting down most of their TV channels in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong sometime this year. The reason for this move was said to be a change from their business models to target consumers directly with their streaming service, Disney+.

The streaming service is already being offered in Singapore and Indonesia, and it’s expected to make its way to Malaysia very soon. As for the channels that will be removed, we have the list right below:

Disney channels: Disney Channel, Disney Junior

Fox channels: Fox, Fox Crime, Fox Life, FX, Fox Movies, Fox Action Movies, Fox Family Movies, Fox Sports, Fox Sports 2, Fox Sports 3

National Geographics channels: Nat Geo People

Star channels: Star Movies China, SCM Legend, Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2

Others: Channel V

TM Unifi is Making Some Premium TV Channels Available for Free

All of the channels above will be closed down starting 1st October 2021, with only four channels running, which are National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, Star Chinese Channel, and Star Chinese Movies. This will heavily affect both Astro and Unifi TV as it’s a big part of their programming.

Locally, we have yet to hear an official announcement of any kind, at least not yet. We will report more on this as soon as information becomes available so stay tuned.

Pokdepinion: This is quite a huge surprise given how long most of those programs have been around for decades now. I guess this is how they plan on getting more people to jump into the new streaming platform.
