Enjoy great movies and great shows on the M-Net Channels

This Easter, the M-Net Channels are providing the “essential items” on your list of entertainment musts – whether you watch all the movies and shows with your DStv decoder, or on DStv Catchup or DStv Now.

Besides the Animania films (the perfect way to keep the little ones busy on M-Net Movies Smile, Action Plus and Zone), as well as the best HBO series on the special Lockdown channel M-Net Binge, more movie magic has been added to the M-Net Channels line-up. There’s also goosebumps-inducing music special, in the form of the Starlight Classics.

This is the time to get up to speed with the latest drama in The Bachelor and Still Breathing, and Carte Blanche has put together a special edition, doing what they do best – bringing you truthful and accurate updates on the issues that matter most.


Here’s a list of some of all the great treats coming your way this Easter, courtesy of the M-Net Channels.
