DStv launches pop-up channel M-Net Binge

MultiChoice just launched a new DStv channel called “M-Net Binge” as an attempt to support South Africans during the Lockdown

Thereafter it will be available seven days a week, between 18:00 and 06:00, Mondays to Sundays because of the racy nature of the channel. The age restricted material makes it unsuitable for daytime viewing.

The weekday schedule for M-Net Binge – Home of HBO has been carefully curated to create appointment viewing. You will find the same series in the same time slot, on the hour, Mondays to Fridays. From shows like The Newsroom, which earned leading man Jeff Daniels several TV nods, to executive producers Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s epic war drama Band of Brothers; and the biggest series of modern times, Game of Thrones. Not to forget recent masterpiece The Night Of and the cult series Six Feet Under. When insomnia hits, there’s also BansheeThe Leftovers and Girls. 

On Saturdays up until 21:00, the line-up is packed with thought-provoking documentaries. It will be followed by another episode of Game of Thrones, screened in the same slot during the week.

Sunday’s schedule belongs to series that have been exclusive to the streaming service Showmax to date: His Dark Materials and Succession. That’s followed by a superstack (six episodes) of classic Sex & The City, starting at 22:00. As a special treat for night owls, the next item on air is the HBO film at 01:00.

The unmissable documentary picked for Saturday 28 March is Ice on Fire. Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, it investigates solutions to reverse the effects of climate change. The film on Sunday is Deadwood: The Movie, created to conclude the hit series of the same name.
