MultiChoice has announced that the current M-Net Series channel will transform into a trio of series channels on 9 July 2013, called M-Net Series Showcase, M-Net Series Reality and M-Net Series Zone.

All three channels will be available to DStv Premium customers, whilst DStv Compact customers will follow their favourite series on M-Net Series Zone.

M-Net Showcase will be the high-definition channel featuring high profile shows like Army Wives, Mad Men, Criminal Minds and Defiance. Most of the series will be seen on African TV for the first time, close to their US debuts,
M-Net Series Reality will cater for the fans for real life series. Reality fare like Junior MasterChef, Life after Top Chef, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, America’s Got Talent and supermodel Naomi Campbell’s The Face will make their African television premieres here.

M-Net Series Zone will be the home of series favourites. It will include content specifically catering for DStv Compact subscribers. The shows will be packaged in such a way that back-to-back screenings, especially over weekends, will make it easy for everyone to catch up on all the series action they may have missed.
“We are now collating our incredible series portfolio in an easy to find, well structured, channel offering. We are specifically catering to the varying tastes of our DStv Premium and DStv Compact viewers,” said Pierre Cloete, director of M-Net channels.
