M-Net presents a new era for movies as it expands movie offering on DStv from October 1



DStv audiences across Africa are set to get more movie magic as entertainment powerhouse M-Net embarks on an exciting new chapter! From Monday 1 October 2012, the M-Net movie offering on DStv will be expanding to include eight genre-themed movie channels. The 8 movie channels are themed according to movie type and will include M-Net Movies Premiere, M-Net Movies Comedy, M-Net Movies Family, M-Net Movies Action Plus, M-Net Movies Drama & Romance and M-Net Movies Showcase. Rounding off the M-Net movie line-up are M-Net Movies Action (previously M-Net Action) and M-Net Movies Stars (previously M-Net Stars). With the tagline A Movie for Every Mood, audiences can now be assured of a wider choice of the best possible selection of available movies anytime of the day.

This will mean that viewers can find the channels that they are looking for easily and quickly. This update of the channel numbers will also allow for future channel growth on DStv. And to help viewers navigate the channel number changes, DStv is also launching a dedicated channel (DStv channel 198), hosted by Big Brother star IK Osakioduwa.  Alternatively simply press OK on your DStv remote and click on the Renumbering section for info.
