DStv’s M-Net channels get a refresh

Published

MNet Logo

Fresh new schedules on M-Net channels to improve DStv customers viewing will see the end of specialist channels including M-Net Edge, M-Net Family and M-Net Movies Showcase as content moves to other M-Net channels.

From 1 April 2017, DStv Premium customers can look forward to a fresh new scheduling approach on M-Net which will result in fewer repeats of movies and series.

The content on M-Net Edge will be integrated into M-Net 101 (East and West). This will give customers a supersized channel with bumper-to-bumper entertainment ranging from the latest shows to the edgier entertainment previously on M-Net Edge.  Extended prime time on M-Net 101 will be from 18:00 CAT to midnight every day. This means fewer repeats on M-Net.

DStv customers can tune in to sitcom fun at 18:00 CAT, followed by the latest blockbuster international reality shows at 18:30 and top-notch drama, crime, comedy or action series from 19:30 CAT onwards. Once the kids are safely in bed – between 21:30 CAT and midnight – customers can enjoy critically acclaimed edgier entertainment like Billions season 2, Magicians season 2; The Leftovers season 3, Bates Motel season 5, Broadchurch season 3, Mad Dogs season 1, Detour season 2 and more.

To top it off, M-Net will pull out all the stops to give DStv customers great entertainment on Saturdays. The reality show repeats will be dropped on Saturdays and Sundays, in favor of fresh sitcoms and dramas which will air on Saturdays from 18:00. Brand new series like cutting-edge medical drama Pure Genius (Augustus Prew, Dermot Mulroney, and Odette Annable), dark comedy Imposters (Inbar Lavi, Parker Young and Stephen Bishop) and the return of Wentworth Miller in firm favorite, Prison Break will start from 19:30.

“We value our customers, and their feedback on the entertainment that we provide for them is very important to us. The entertainment landscape is changing faster than ever so we’ve made these changes based on what our viewers have told us. We will keep reviewing our program offering and ensuring that we put our customers’ needs at the forefront of all our operations,” says Charles Hamya, General Manager MultiChoice Uganda.

Our plan is to schedule fresh movies more often, so M-Net Movies Showcase (channel 107) will be dropped in favor of more themed pop-up channels which have been very well received.

“Our pop-up channels are extremely popular,” added Hamya. “Viewers love the fact that they can easily find a collection of their favorite movies packaged under a specific theme on one channel. They enjoyed the Star Wars and Harry Potter pop-up channels, with James Bond having launched the last Wednesday, 22 February  – and we’re planning several more throughout the year.”

The recently launched M-Net Movies Collection also adds to the breadth of M-Net’s movie offering. The M-Net Movies Collection comprise more than 1000 movies and is available on DStv Catch Up Plus, accessible to customers when they connect their DStv Explora to the internet. The collection is also accessible on the Catch Up section on DStv Now online and on the app. DStv Premium customers can choose what movie they would like to watch, when it suits them best.

Now this is going to be very interesting as people just cannot wait to see how this all thing transpire. On the other side however at Serena based station, NTV, The beat pulled in another entertainment power name ‘Dagy Nyce’ to face off with Kats and Lwanga for the same peak time TV slot.

Kats, Lwanga and Dagy Nyce are not strangers to each other as they have done and shared stage of countless concerts, shows and launches. This gives us the feeling they all are well aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. However, they have never really faced off doing different shows on different stations at the same time. Which makes this a whole different kind of interest to the viewers. So Sheila Gashumba and Dagy Nyce to fight for afternoon TV entertainment against Kats and Douglas Lwanga. Where will your remote control be.
