Cape Town – FOX Crime (StarSat 131) is back up on On Digital Media's (ODM) StarSat platform after the channel went black and disappeared without explanation this past Thursday evening.

The blackout of FOX Crime only affected StarSat subscribers; FOX Crime is also available on MultiChoice's DStv where the channel wasn't interrupted. FOX Crime is run and distributed by Fox International Channels (FIC).

This past Friday Fox International Channels Africa (FIC Africa) told Channel24 that the issue wasn’t with them. That meant that FOX Crime wasn't terminated and was not yanked by FIC from the StarSat platform, and secondly, that there was some kind of problem with StarSat.

StarSat responded to a media enquiry and told Channel24 that FOX Crime went missing due to "a temporary technicalproblem at the uplink site" and that StarSat technicians are working on it.

StarSat's pay-TV satellite service in South Africa has so far suffered channel interruption problems as well as video and audio quality problems every month since December 2013 and into January, February and March of 2014 since China's StarTimes came onboard as a financial backer.
