Buckle up fast, because all the mean supercar machines of the world’s most adrenaline-fuelled film franchise are bolting down the road at breakneck speed!
From Saturday 1 April to Sunday 9 April M-Net and MultiChoice are putting peddle to the mettle with a special M-Net Movies Fast & Furious pop-up channel (DStv channel 109) featuring all seven of the high-octane movies built on non-stop action, heart-stopping stunts, heart-pumping chases and superstar casts.
The M-Net Movies Fast & Furious Pop-up channel is a special treat for MultiChoice’s DStv Premium customers, just days before the much-anticipated film premiere of Fast 8 - starring Vin Diesel, Jason Statham and Charlize Theron - which will be released in cinemas worldwide.
The channel will also be streamed on DStv Now and all seven films will be available on the M-Net Movies Collection on Catch Up Plus, which can be accessed via the DStv Wifi Connector.
“We promised to bring viewers unmissable curated movie themed channels in 2017 and are excited to rev it up after the massive success of pop-ups such as the recent James Bond extravaganza and M-Net Inspire,” said MultiChoice Africa CEO Brand de Villiers. “The M-Net Movies Fast & Furious pop-up has been timed to feed into the frenzy around the latest edition in the franchise and also coincides with exciting changes on the M-Net channels. April is indeed going to be a super-sized month on the M-Net front.”
On Saturday 1 April, M-Net 101 and M-Net Edge are merging to form an improved channel with an extended prime time and zero repeats between 18:00 CAT and midnight.
The M-Net Movies Fast & Furious channel will run daily from 10:00 with back-to-back Fast films until around 22:30 CAT. Do note however, that the channel will conclude on 9 April with a binge-viewing session, with all seven films running in chronological order. For the full schedules, please consult the EPG Guide or go to mnet.tv.
