M-Net will launch a brand new, feel-good movie channel – M-Net Movies Smile, which will offer plenty of chuckles for the entire family. As the name signals, this is the channel guaranteed to make viewers smile.

What’s more, the month of July will also bring with it new changes that include the revamp of M-Net Movies Showcase. The addition of M-Net Movies Smile (DStv channel 105) and the revamp of M-Net Movies Showcase (moving from DStv channel 108 to 107) will mean that three of the existing movie channels – M-Net Movies Comedy (DStv channel 104), M-Net Movies Family (DStv channel 105) and M-Net Movies Romance (DStv channel 107) will no longer exist. Fans of these channels should not despair as the content previously available on these three channels will be consolidated into the new M-Net Movies Smile and the revamped M-Net Movies Showcase channels to ensure that viewers continue to enjoy their favourite movie genres.

What’s more, DStv will add more value to the Compact Plus and Compact packages with the addition of M-Net Movies Stars which will bring viewers more entertainment with the best of Hollywood blockbusters while Africa Magic Igbo (DStv channel 159) will be made available to the Family and Access packages from July.

These channel changes are part of M-Net’s efforts to streamline its channels in order to enhance DStv subscribers’ viewing experience.
