Earlier this year, M-Net 101 on DStv bumped up its schedule with an extended prime time, from 18:00 until midnight. Now, the channel of non-stop magic is taking another step to make it easier for viewers to find their favourite shows. From Friday, 1 September, all the prime time programming on M-Net 101 will start on the hour

“We promised our viewers that we would continue to streamline our M-Net 101 line-up to make it super-strong and predictable,” says M-Net General Manager Nkateko Mabaso. “With the rejuvenated M-Net 101 schedule, kicking off this Spring, there can be no more confusion about the start time of programmes. You can simply switch over to M-Net on the hour for a fresh, new show.”

This means that the hugely popular international reality slot will now start at 18:00, Mondays to Fridays. That will be followed by top rated Hollywood series - mostly dramas - at 19:00, after which viewers can sit tight for more acclaimed action drama and Express from the US fare at 20:00 and 21:00. Then, at 22:00, when the kids are tucked into bed, the more risque series will follow in the channel’s strictly-for-adults slot.
