M-Net set to celebrate 30 years with free movies
Pay TV channel M-Net, which falls under DStv, is set to celebrate a milestone this coming month with free movies to its customers.
October 2016 will mark the channels 30 years in existence since the first M-Net subscribers connected their analogue decoders.
It was a major entertainment breakthrough at the time giving viewers access to a brand new world of great television.
To celebrate the milestone, M-Net will be launching the ‘on-screen birthday bash’, M-Net Movies Blockparty on DStv 109.
The channels will run for the entire month of October playing everyone’s favourite comedy movies, the latest comedy shows and handing the mic over to the world’s best stand-up comedians.
The channel will be rolling out the red carpet for comedy greats Seth Rogen, Eddie Murphy, Amy Schumer, Jim Carrey, Leon Schuster, Steve Martin, Austin Powers, Kevin Hart, Trevor Noah, Ellen DeGeneres, Martin Lawrence and many more.
M-Net CEO Yolisa Phahle said, “M-Net would not have been where it is today without the loyal support of our viewers.”
He added that, they have something for everyone and will keep providing shows for the whole family to enjoy together.
“Comedy is always popular and we would like our viewers to have some fun, so we look forward to celebrating our big birthday with as many people as possible,” he said.
From Africa Magic, Maisha Magic East, Jango Magic, Zambezi Magic and M-Net Edge has grown to an array of more than 40 channels from the days of analogue channels.
EXCLUSIVE TV SPECIAL
M-Net Movies BlockParty will be screened around the clock for 30 days.
Each night there will be seriously funny classic series, side-splitting and raucous stand-up comedy shows.
Apart from the M-Net Movies BlockParty pop-up channel, M-Net is also producing an exclusive TV special about the history and evolution of the network, as well as the way in which it has developed the African film and television industry and positively changed the lives of many people.
