Why Sony Max SA and Sony Channel are getting Dropped?

Sony Max
Subscribers of GoTV Max Bouquet got this text.

The subscribers of GoTV and DsTV where simply told that Sony Max and Sony Channel will no longer be on air from 31-Oct-2018. Good news for the subscribers as new stations to be launched. Stations like BET and Sport Select 5 are in line to be added.

A logical reason for getting the channel down would be fact that the subscribers complains that it contents are obsolete. Apart from having obsolete content,  they aired the same content that already aired on other channels.
