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.

The telecom giant has sponsored the MTN Hip Hop Awards for the last 3 years. The MTN Pulse Rap Battles, however, offer the rap community a sustained opportunity to express their talent and are a fitting lead up to the awards.

Tonight, the journey to crowing the king of rap begins. Tune in.

Joseph Sabiti

By Our Reporter

NBS TV’s star political journalist, Joseph Sabiiti over the weekend bade farewell to his colleagues at Next Media Services shortly after hosting his last “Big Talk” edition on NXT Radio.

The charismatic reporter, whose career highlight will arguably be his coverage of the alleged stone-shooting of President Museveni’s convoy by Bobi Wine and “People Power” loyalists, sent a short and precise good-bye message to all Next Media Services staff through their WhatsApp platform.

“Good afternoon, I will be taking a break from active Journalism for a while,” read Sabiiti’s WhatsApp message to fellow staff. “Thank you for the amazing four years at Media Plaza, it has been every inch worth it and Next Media will always remain home,” he added.

Sabiiti will now assume the position of Communications Officer at Action Aid Uganda.

Before NBS TV, Sabiiti worked with the now-defunct WBS TV.

Many notable figures and colleagues have since come out on Twitter to wish Sabiiti the best for the future;

Hon. Frank Tumwebaze: Congratulations @sabitijoseph on your new Job. Advancement in career is a dream a very progressive mind should work and aspire for. All the best!

Mujuni Raymond: It was a great honour to work with you. The stories we broke, speaking truth to power, informing audiences and dignifying the profession. Thank you for countless hours of advice and sacrifice. Write us a book. 

Shaban Bantariza: Ohh! I missed your Last Talk Show?! Heading for Information Management at some Organization? Blessed Next Phase of your Journey bro!! Keep available and in touch!

Sheila Nduhukire: Thank you for sharing your brilliance with us; in the field and on our screens. Break a leg! @sabitijoseph

It awaits to be seen how Next Media Services will cover the gap left behind by clearly one of their best creations yet.

By Staff Writer

NTV Uganda recently unveiled another talent as an addition to their vibrant news team. Arnold Segawa is the name and everyone has been talking about the financial journalist passionate about macroeconomics and monetary policy.

Just who is Anorld and what about him has gotten everyone talking on Social Media with some people abandoning the very popular NBS Live at 9 for NTV Tonight as a source of information.

Well for starters, the ladies love his voice. One lady said that his presentation is just on point and it keeps everyone glued, but it is the voice that tops it all off.

Others have come out to joke that he looks a lot like a guy from SFC thanks to his mustache and no-nonsense face when he is on set.

Well, Arnold is a Chicago Plan enthusiast and anchor. He is an experienced broadcast professional anchoring global top-tier media programs on finance and economics. Segawa describes himself as a market aficionado. It is said that no Ugandan journalist comes close to him when it is financial matters and his beard can prove this point. At only 29 years of age, Segawa is living many people’s dreams before he even clocks 30.

The now NTV Tonight news anchor is skilled in framing discussions about current challenges facing the African continent to reach a diverse regional and global audience. 

While in Rwanda, he worked as Program Manager at 94.3 Royal FM. It is here that CNBC spotted him. He holds a certificate in oil and gas management from Victoria University, a bachelors in International Business from Makerere University and Masters of arts in Journalism and media studies from Makerere University.

Make a date with him tonight at 9pm on NTV Uganda and find out why everyone is talking.
