Orbit Showtime Network was hit by a power failure following a fire in its broadcast centre in Dubai, which has resulted in some channels being unavailable, according to a statement from du.

At the moment, 44 OSN channels are functioning as normal, including Food Network, Nat Geo Wild, BBC Lifestyle, Sky News HD, BBC World, Animal Planet and Aflam 1 and 2.
