EMedia and MultiChoice have renewed a channel supply agreement in which Multichoice have opted not to carry certain eMedia channels, namely eMovies, eMovies Extra, eExtra and eToonz.

All the channels will continue to broadcast and are still available on the Openview platform. Viewers have access to eMovies, eMovies Extra, eExtra, eToonz, and so much more on the Openview platform by purchasing an Openview decoder for a once-off cost with no monthly fees, to continue uninterrupted viewing.
