DSTV Channel Apologises For Erroneously Airing Nelson Mandela's Obituary

The Universal Channel (DStv 117) has apologised for erroneously broadcasting an obituary about Nelson Mandela - entitled Remembering Madiba on Tuesday night.

 Universal, which is broadcast on MultiChoice's DStv pay-TV platform, says the feature about Mandela - who is very much alive - was broadcast due to a "technical error". 
 On Tuesday night viewers reacted with shock when the Universal Channel's broadcast implied that Mandela had passed away. 
 Universal Networks International says airing the remembrance special was premature but explained that all broadcasters have such programming ready.
