as I was watching channel 25 on gotv tonight the channel just went off. I then noticed that its not only Zee, CNN & some other channels also where no longer on the channel list. May I know what is actually going on? Without any notification you just removed channels not putting your customer s into consideration. This is not good enough for a company like yours.
