DSTV has announced that it will be re-organising its M-Net Movie channels from the six current channels into four “slick, fuss-free” channels from 1 September.
These channels will be known as M-Net Movies 1, 2, 3, and 4.
DStv said that while there will be fewer M-Net Movie channels after this change, it will not impact the number of movies customers have access to.
“It’s important for us to facilitate the best possible viewing experience for our DStv customers in our ever-evolving world of entertainment,” said MultiChoice SA CEO Mark Rayner.
“While the proposition of the current six movie channels – M-Net Movies Premiere, Action Plus, Action, Smile, Zone and All Stars – made perfect sense when they launched years ago, recent comments and requests from our movie-loving DStv audiences indicated that it was time for a reboot.”
All four of these channels will be available to Premium subscribers, while compact customers will have access to M-Net Movies 3 and 4. Family and Access customers will only have access to M-Net Movies 4.
