M-Net City and VUZU will be discontinued on DStv at the end of October, and their content will be combined into a new bundled channel simply named “Me”.
DStv subscribers received an SMS from MultiChoice informing them that they would be losing another two TV channels, M-Net City and VUZU, on November 1, to be replaced by a single channel called Me.
The move comes after Disney ended and removed its FOX general entertainment channel from DStv and StarSat shortly after midnight on September 30.
“With the debut of Me, M-Net City (DStv 115) and VUZU (DStv 116) will be merged to create a bigger, better channel focused on giving audiences their famous, world-class series and reality shows in one place,” says M-Net.
“Me will incorporate the best elements of both of its predecessors while building a fresh identity intentionally built for a discerning audience.”
Me will be broadcast on M-Net City’s channel number 115. The M-Net City channel identity born out of the M-Net Series Zone channel in April 2015 will be retired after six years.
In July 2009, M-Net relaunched its GO youth channel as VUZU, which produced a spin-off TV channel called VUZU AMP, which was later scrapped and relaunched as 1Magic.
M-Net is retiring the VUZU brand name after 12 years, deciding to end VUZU and replace it with Me.
M-Net City is available to DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus, and DStv Compact subscribers, whereas VUZU is available to DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus, and DStv Compact subscribers.
