UMP Stars fails; to bid adieu to UK viewers

Touted as the official channel for Bollywood, UMP Stars has fallen off air for the second time in a week.

The channel, which is available on Sky Digital EPG 853 has abruptly stopped broadcasting with a “technical fault” message displayed.

It is known that the channel recently changed transponders behind the scenes but this is something known for channels to do every so often but would not result in a service coming off air. The channel had a similar issue last Thursday evening but resumed broadcasting thereafter.

It is unclear when and if the channel is returning. It’s sister station, UMP Movies remains unaffected.
