Thousands of Emmanuel TV fans, the broadcasting arm of Synagogue Church Of All Nations SCOAN have now found new home in Free to Air (FTA) Decoder after moving away with enthusiasm from DSTV cable platform.
This followed the delisting of the channel on the 17th January this year from its platform on an unsubstantiated allegation which viewers have described as “flimsy and spurious”.
DSTV had written to SCOAN alleging that viewers of Emmanuel TV were no longer strong enough for it to retain the Christian channel on its stable. But SCOAN disagreed with the DSTV’s allegation and made a request for an empirical proof which DSTV failed to provide and still went ahead to remove the channel in what looked like a premeditated decision.
Our investigations also show that Emmanuel TV before now had been under pressure and attack for “airing offensive broadcasts against the mental health of some people in the world”. These so-called offended people are those in the categories of LGTBQ people who manifested and received deliverance during SCOAN’s services.
In Lagos, Nigeria, Mr. Mohammed Rasak, a technician has been experiencing a boom in his business. He stated how occupied he had been in the last few days installing HD Decoders for people. “I was wondering why so many people are buying HD Decoders not until these clients told me it was because of Emmanuel TV.
Consequently, SCOAN in its Sunday service had announced its migration from DSTV, GOTV and all other pay cable platforms asking all Emmanuel TV viewers across the globe to follow suit to Free To Air FTA High Definition HD Decoder, Apple TV, FireTV stick, Roku TV, Google TV all to be downloaded on the Apple Store and Google Play where “accessing Emmanuel TV is about to become more versatile, more convenient and more reliable”.
That was the command and it has gone like a bush fire among its members and lovers of Emmanuel TV.
A career diplomat who does not want his name in print has this to say:
“I really don’t have facts on the matter but my immediate thought from the smokes was that it has to do with the same issue YouTube frowned at which is talking about homosexuality. The west is very intolerant of any criticism of the demonic practice. DSTV may actually be fighting a proxy war for the west” he said.
The migration from DSTV family is now ‘operation totality’. From the South to North and East to West especially in the African continent where we have tried to feel the pulse of the people.
Mrs okuwengu Nancy a public affairs guru in East Africa has this to say: “I understand that being with DSTV is not at all a cost effective venture because it is ridiculously expensive for both the church and users. I also noticed from various calls made to me by Kenyans and Nations around that they too will no longer use DSTV because they mainly needed it for Emmanuel TV. The only thing they will miss in DSTV is football but other streaming services like Netflix are cheaper and give equally good entertainment like movies. People are moving to free to air decoders”.
From all indications, notwithstanding the DSTV’s bullets against Emmanuel TV, the SCOAN’s Christian channel is waxing stronger as more platforms are now available for its followers.
