MultiChoice launched a brand new channel, Me (DStv channel 115) on 1 November. The channel offers a wide selection of international programming and is targeted at DStv Family and DStv Compact viewers, but will also be available to DStv Premium and DStv Compact Plus audiences.
The launch of Me sees two channels, M-Net City (DStv channel 115) and Vuzu (DStv channel 116), merged to create a bigger, better channel aimed to give viewers their famous, world-class series and reality shows in one place.
“We’ve changed the way we package content and created a single, extensive, well-curated destination,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of General Entertainment for Multichoice Group. “Me gives our customers a multifaceted, competitive channel offering, and we’re pleased to offer the best international entertainment in one place,”
M-Net City (DStv channel 115) was launched as a channel where viewers can catch up on the latest and best international series, while Vuzu (DStv channel 116) has always been the true voice of an edgier African youth. Me features the best of both its predecessors, while establishing a new identity strategically crafted with the discerning young 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 (DStv channel 101) and 1Magic (DStv channel 103).
“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.
