M-Net launches 25 days of Kung-Fu fights, karate chops and roundhouse kicks

M-Net and MultiChoice have created yet another thrilling movies pop-up channel. Following the massive success of themed movie channel offerings such as the M-Net Movies Fast & Furious, Star Wars, Harry Potter, James Bond and other must-watch pop-up channels, M-Net Movies Blackbelt will hit television screens across Africa on Thursday 15 June.

For a full 25 days thereafter, DStv Premium and DStv Compact customers can Kung-Fu fight, Karate chop, roundhouse kick and create all kinds of pulse-pounding mayhem with the masters of martial arts.

The M-Net Movies Blackbelt pop-up channel, which will burst onto channel 109, will showcase a variety of action-packed films in this highly popular martial arts movie genre and its numerous sub-genres. Instead of only focusing on recent high-adrenaline blockbusters of the kind, the pop-up channel has been carefully curated to feature martial arts gems spanning over 40 years from around the globe.

Powerhouse actors like Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris Steven Seagal and Jet Li will be stable.

The channel will run from 9am to midnight, that is 15 hours a day. Old movies will be in standard definition and new movies will be high definition.

The channel closes on 9 July 2017.
