M-Net’s 1Magic Channel Is Now Available To DStv Compact Plus Subscribers

M-Net is extending the reach of its 1Magic TV channel (DStv 103) that has been made available as from Thursday 18 April to all DStv Compact Plus subscribers.

The channel which carries shows like the South African telenovela The River, has up until now only been available to DStv Premium subscribers, the top-tier option, when the VUZU AMP channel was revamped and then rebranded as 1Magic.

The new development comes one day before the launch of the new reality show produced by Rapid Blue, One Night with My Ex on Friday 19 April on the channel.

The CEO of M-Net, Nkateko Mabaso said that last year M-Net announced that 1Magic would be replacing VUZU AMP in an effort to make the channel a new hub of entertainment for the DStv Premium viewers. He said that the decision had been informed by M-Net’s drive to invest in local content by focusing on placing local hit shows alongside international content.

Mabaso added that now as M-Net’s way to turn up the heat this winter and also to keep its viewers entertained, the channel has been added DStv Compact Plus as an added incentive for its subscribers to enjoy the best entertainment shows in their living rooms.
