    iFilm 2 (Dari) is launched, but as promo.

    It is known that iFilm was supposed to be only for Iranian Series Fans from the Arab World.

    Afterthat, They have added a Farsi Audiotrack.They have later launched an English Channel in 2013.

    Unfortunately, iFilm since 2017 has removed the Arabic Track from TV Series and put it only in reports about Iran and nature on the Farsi Channel as I have seen.

    IFilm Arabic since 2 years ago stopped airing Iranian ad breaks in Arabic, while the Farsi Channel has continued to air Iranian Commecial Breaks (Payamhay Bazarqani).

    Ifilm is weirdly available on a Tanzanian provider called TING (Tanzania Integrated Network Group - or was it "Network Grid"), they also had (have?) a clone of MBC 2 called Channel 2.

    Watching Discovery Turbo right now and it appears to be stuck in a promo loop. Only one is a Turbo promo the rest are Discovery channel promos.

    Now let me summarize Bengal's changes since the start of the year:
    • Kantipur upgrades to HD
    • Tara Muzik shuts down or was removed by Bengal because the channel came from the state of West Bengal
    • Decoders say on January 27 that they were going to reshuffle their channels based on "content type"
    • Switch on January 28, with some channels being paired to match their HD feeds
    • Channel [V] China (FTA) added but was then removed (was a test service)
    • DD India (not properly identified on the decoder) added
    • Channel [V] China is readded
    • UTV Action, STAR Movies HD, Movies OK, TravelXP, Bindass, BBC Lifestyle, CNBC, Sony Yay, Food TV (New Zealand), 9X Jhakaas, MTV Classic (Australia, FTA), MTV China (also FTA), ZEE TV HD and HBO HD (Asia) and HUM MENA are all added on January 30
    • Bangla TV HD, STAR Utsav and ARY Family added too
    • Bengal adds ID India however the channel was about to shut down in favor of Jeet
    • BBC Lifestyle and Sony BBC Earth swap slots
    • Discovery Kids switched to Asian feed (temporarily)
    • Hum MENA dropped because it was scrambled, also Bengal had Hum South Asia so having the Arabian feed might have been a stretch
    • MTV Classic Australia and Sony BBC Earth lost signal. BBC Earth's Asian feed coming?

    >Indian kids even know that their national programmes are universally terrible
    Wew. Knowing how that country has the most clean toilets out there (There's a reason they're clean, and it all originates from a sewage contract fight when the country was being settled), I can't say I'm too surprised.

    Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 Italy not showing Winter Olympics (in spite of misleading ads) on Sky because Sky and Discovery have not agreed a deal.. here we go again

    We're all losing out, and Sky is particularly to blame

    Yes

    ES1 and ES2 on Sky are now the Russian versions, which do not air Olympics; meanwhile, ES1 and ES2 on Mediaset Premium air them..

    It's a shameful situation, that could only happen in a shameful market such as the Italian one.. many many are angry with Sky for misleading ads, heck, even yesterday ads for the Olympics were aired on Sky

    It's really a new low for Sky.. their arrogance knows no boundaries, particularly because they do not want to pay extra money

    We have the Olympics on Eurosport 1 and 2 International (lucky Portuguese) and RTP will air the opening and closing ceremonies live. Some highlights will be shown.

    Only two Portuguese athletes will compete at the Winter Olympics, however RTP doesn't know if it will air both events live.

    I am shocked at the Italian situation, the deal with SKY might have changed at the last minute.

    Discovery Kids India to air this new local show next week.

    Btw, I think the Asian one was stuck in a rerun loop. The promos appear to be from 2016 judging by the continuities I saw and doesn’t seem to be doing anything new.

    Is it me or does the image remind me of some British cartoon? Horrid Henry, perhaps?
