Following up on the Supersport channel renaming. DStv seems to be giving the M-Net movie channels the same treatment. In an announcement made by DStv Zimbabwe, the M-Net movie channels will now have a new format.
More of a merger of M-Net Movie channels than a facelift
The M-Net movie range of channels will be streamlined into four themed units which DStv say will make viewing choices easier and quicker.
“The concept of this change is to make it easier for viewers to source movies, through providing focus channels and by streamlining the overall line-up into four genre-driven units”
