9 days left, get ready for Pehla’s Cessation from OSN. StarPlus and StarGOLD will no longer be available in the MENA region, unless if beIN or My-HD decided to broadcasts them.

For Zee, Du & Etisalat in the UAE and Ooredoo in Qatar is still broadcasting them, and won’t be affected. I wish if beIN launches Zee and Star channels, and My-HD should relaunch My-Asia package, which was closed in 2016.

Rare screenshots from the only owned Albanian satellite company, called AlbaniaSat, which became bankrupt in 2004 because Digitalb got their frequencies.

On the 21st of February 2005, AlbaniaSat gave an announcement to their subscribers on their official website (www.albaniasat.com)

Here is the announcement:

Original language: Albanian
Translated to English by me

ALBANIASAT IS CHANGING (announcement)

Albaniasat brings to you a higher quality of its programmes and organizing them on our channels.

After a long and hard work, we made possible to offer you some new thematic channels, which replaced the former ones so:

SAT+1 becomes +1Sport (dedicated to sport)
SAT+2 becomes +2 Dok (dedicated to documentaries)
FilmSat becomes +3 Premiere (dedicated to the newest movies)
+4 Family will be added (dedicated to movies of all ages)
Kanal Shqip becomes +5 Shqip
Toon Sat becomes +6 Toon
BBF Television will be called +7 Music
+8 Chat will be added (dedicated only to SMS communication)

The other channels of this bouquet will stay unchanged.

Also, in the events of the changes, Albaniasat subscribers probably will have to re-tune their decoders to get the new channels.


These are the launch and close dates of the channels that were to replace the older channels.


+1 Sport 21-02-2005 - 26-11-2006
+2 Dok 21-02-2005 - 25-10-2006
+3 Premiere 21-02-2005 - 25-10-2006
+4 Family 21-02-2005 - 25-10-2006
+5 Shqip 21-02-2005 - 25-10-2006
+6 Toon 21-02-2005 - 25-10-2006
+7 Music 21-02-2005 - 26-11-2006
+8 Chat 21-02-2005 - 02-04-2005


This was the pre-rebrand channel list and other channels that were on the AlbaniaSat bouquet.

Albaniasat promo 20-09-2004 - 25-05-2006
Toon Sat 06-10-2004 - 21-02-2005
Kanal Shqip 17-10-2003 - 21-02-2005
NRG TV 31-12-2004 - 17-11-2006
Made in Albania 04-06-2005 - 09-01-2006
SAT +1 06-10-2004 - 21-02-2005
SAT +2 06-10-2004 - 21-02-2005
Film Sat 17-10-2003* - 21-02-2005
BBF Televizion (AlbaniaSat version)
24-11-2003 - 21-02-2005


*Unsure if actual date.


On 25th of October 2006, all channels (except for +1 Sport and +7 Music ,which closed a month later) of the AlbaniaSat package would close down .

The longest living channels owned by AlbaniaSat were +1 Sport and +7 Music, both closing down on 26 November 2006.

Here are the screenshots from June 2005 in order:

+1 Sport,
+1 Sport - June 2005.png

+2 Dok,
+2 Dok - June 2005.png

+3 Premiere,
+3 Premiere - June 2005.png

+5 Shqip,

And +6 Toon.

Yeah, such a sad story for one of the first sattelite packages in Albania.

This is to the dedicated memory of Digi Premiere (Film Hits) which closed down less than a week ago.
Here is an screenshot from the channel's very first days airing a promo for "Mean Girls". Yeah, the 2004 movie.
The channel used to show the newest movies that came out. It was exclusive to Digitalb and there also was a similar channel by AlbaniaSat.

RIP Film Hits

5 days left and Pehla ceases transmission on OSN for good. B4U Plus posted a tweet telling Indian/South Asian’s OSN subscribers and Bollywood fans that B4U Aflam and B4U Plus is available on Nilesat and OSN’s Channel Lists and is unaffected and uninterrupted due to being FTA since its launch. It’s also available on IPTV providers like Ooredoo Qatar, Du TV and Etisalat’s eLife in the UAE, and KSA’s STC.

Why did SDCC have to happen during the same weekend as Vinesauce Is Hope?
With how widespread the Joy-Con analog drift issue is, I'm honestly surprised I haven't had that issue yet. I've had my console for almost two years.
Is Nick doing anything for SDCC
I hope Trevor Devall is in the PPG 2016 reboot.
