Barely a week after partnering with the Nigerian Breweries Plc for the broadcast of the reality series, ‘The Gulder Ultimate Search,’ MultiChoice has gone ahead to announce the launch of Me; a channel offering a wide selection of international programming.
The launch of Me will see 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’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.
“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.
The channel is targeted at DStv Family and DStv Compact viewers but will also be available to DStv Premium and DStv Compact Plus audiences.
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.
