Multichoice has announced the shutting down of Vuzu and M-Net City 115 to make way for the launch of brand channel Me on 1 November 2021. These channels are being merged to create one space housing the key shows.
The channel is targeted at DStv Family and DStv Compact viewers but will also be available to DStv Premium and DStv Compact Plus audiences. These are being merged to create one channel housing
“We’re changing the way we package content and creating a single, extensive, well-curated destination. Me will give our viewers and subscribers a multifaceted, competitive channel offering, and we’re pleased to offer the best international entertainment in one place,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of General Entertainment for Multichoice Group.
M-Net City 115 was launched as a channel where viewers can catch up on the latest and best international series, while Vuzu 116 has always been the true voice of an edgier African youth. Me will feature the best of both its predecessors, while establishing a new identity strategically crafted with the discerning audience in mind.
Me is a destination for primarily the 18 to 34-year-old market, and, in addition to international scripted content, it will feature lifestyle shows and celebrity content that has been previously broadcast on M-Net Channel 101 and 1Magic. “Me is taking us in an exciting direction that speaks to the multiplatform world we live in and further sharpens our aim to give our subscribers content that they connect with,” concludes Phahle.
Me will launch with daily episodes of The Rookie, NCIS: New Orleans, Survivor Australia and Young Sheldon from 17:00 to 20:00. From 20:30 you can join Me for a mix of local and international series like Lioness, Prodigal Son, All American and 911. The Real Housewives (starting with The Real Housewives of Atlanta) will bring the drama every weekday at 21:30, leading us to our late-night slot. 22:30 is when you can get a little dark with Me as this slot will have acclaimed international dramas and thrillers like Godfather of Harlem, Clarice and Flight Attendant.
On weekends, it’s Me-time. Start Friday evening with The Bachelorette SA or a movie. Saturdays and Sunday are filled with gameshows, talent shows and reality shows like Beat Shazam, American Idol and Growing Up Hip Hop. Sunday evening at 20:00, will feature acclaimed dramas such as Queen Sugar.
M-Net City (DStv channel 115) and Vuzu (DStv channel 116) will officially close on Friday, 29 October. Me (DStv channel 115) will launch on Monday, 1 November at 16:00.
