M-Net and MultiChoice unveil M-Net Edge, Vuzu Amp

Posted by radio On September - 14 - 2014

M-Net and MultiChoice has revealed the names of the two high-end television channels that will hit our screens this October. These out-of-the-ordinary additions to DStv’s Premium package will be called M-Net Edge and Vuzu Amp.


Switched-on, trendy viewers who currently enjoy Vuzu, will be able to dive into the coolness and amplified experience of Vuzu Amp for the first time on Tuesday, 13 October at 17:00. Channel 114 on DStv will be the home of this amplified Vuzu channel featuring local and international content in HD for DStv Premium customers.


Then, on Tuesday, 20 October at 19:00, M-Net Edge will move into channel 102 as the thought provoking, more irreverent home to award winning television. It will be a companion to flagship channel M-Net 101, known for its blockbuster glitz and glamour.


Due to the age restrictions linked to the programming on M-Net Edge, the channel will be on air for eleven hours only – from 18:00 in the evening until 05:00 the next morning.


“M-Net Edge and Vuzu Amp are taking the curation of top-notch premium television content to an exciting next level,” says Yolisa Phahle, M-Net CEO: South Africa. “These two contrasting entertainment channels have been created to make it easier for viewers to find out what to watch, where to watch it and at what time. As there is now more choice than ever, it is important to create channels that are clearly positioned, allowing viewers to find what they feel like as fast as possible. Both channels will schedule a combination of first-run programming and iconic shows with schedules designed to correlate with the latest worldwide viewing trends.”


The revolutionary M-Net Edge line-up will feature the most critically acclaimed cult-craze series from Hollywood – the kind of risqué shows you would prefer not to watch with the entire family. On the October schedule, for example, you will find the eagerly awaited Emmy award-winning comedy-drama Orange is the New Black. Among the other big attractions are the brand new series Masters of Sex and Satisfaction, as well as new seasons of The Americans, Defiance and American Horror Story.


M-Net Edge viewers can also indulge in iconic series every day of the week and there will also be binge viewing opportunities on weekends and early evening double bills, where the previously screened episode of a series will lead into a not-been-seen episode. The popular series Sleepy Hollow will receive this treatment.



To make way for these two unprecedented channels, the current M-Net Series Showcase and M-Net Series Reality channels on DStv Premium will discontinue as of October. Instead, the content from these channels will be found on M-Net Edge (channel 102) or Vuzu Amp (channel 114).
