“By decision of the Disney programmer, from April 1st the following signals will stop transmitting”reported Movistar on its website. The withdrawn channels were FXM, Star Life, Nat Geo Wild, Nat Geo Kids, and Disney XD, all owned by Disney, and replaced by Clover, UCL, Lolly Kids, Tooncast, and El Tiempo.
Movistar sources told this newspaper that the recent update is due to a “content renewal” arranged by the company.
