This is one of two decent stations that I can get on FTA. All that's left is KTV2. Time to put up my C-band dish

That's too bad that they are leaving FTA satellite as they air a lot of good British and Turkish dramas.  Maybe if enough people contact them that they will reconsider.

Just tweeted the following message making reference to Ebru TV's twitter account @EbruTV

Quote
A LOT more viewers than you think are watching @EbruTv (https://twitter.com/EbruTv) on FTA satellite! Please reconsider your decision to leave us!

I suggest that everyone that has Twitter retweet https://twitter.com/SatelliteHomeCa/status/548563466940723200
Hopefully this can somehow make them reconsider.

Yes, I'm watching it right at this moment.

Something I noticed is that they seem to be pushing the Digii Android STB as it is listed as the first option on the list and I saw them air a TV ad about the device.  Looking on its website at http://www.digii.tv/channels/, I can see that Ebru along with other channels from the same broadcaster such as Samanyolu are featured in their channels list. 

Could they be discontinuing their FTA feed in order to push Digii sales?  I see a notice on the bottom of the webpage stating that:

We are now taking pre-orders, all orders will be shipped after Jan 1st, 2015

so it appears that they may have had a delay in getting these new devices ready so hopefully they keep the FTA feed running for a few more weeks till people get their devices.

Unfortunately my hope was short lived as Ebru and even Samanyolu are now off the air. :(
