Big DStv channel changes

DStv has announced changes to its channel organisation, which will affect Premium and Compact subscribers.

In addition to moving channels, DStv announced the termination of M-Net Movies Comedy, Family, and Romance.

The content on M-Net Movies Romance will be moved to M-Net Movies Showcase.

M-Net Movies Comedy and Family content will move to a new channel called M-Net Movies Smile.

“M-Net Movies has reduced the number of older library movies in the schedule, to keep the movie offering new and fresh,” said the company.

DStv also promised that viewers can look forward to more pop-up channels, like the recent M-Net Movies Blackout channel, and last year’s M-Net Movies Star Wars channel.

Two more HD channels for DStv Compact viewers

DStv Compact subscribers will also receive two movie channels in high definition.

These channels are M-Net City (channel 115) and M-Net Movies Action (channel 110).
