M-Net launches Binge channel
DStv has announced the launch of a new ‘watch and record’ channel called M-Net Binge.
MultiChoice Zimbabwe publicity and public relations manager Liz Dziva said M-Net Binge would launch on Saturday May 6 and would give DStv Premium viewers access to entire seasons of hit shows that have been premiered on channels such as M-Net, M-Net Edge and VUZU Amp.
It will run on DStv channel 900 on Sundays and Saturdays from 9.30pm to 5am.
Themed weekends are planned, such as a Shonda Rhimes breakaway, Superhero take-over or period drama fest. M-Net Binge will offer a special lead-up to the highly-anticipated worldwide release of the reboot of Twin Peaks on Tuesday May 23. On opening weekend, M-Net Binge will feature all nine episodes of the first season of David Lynch’s famous crime drama, while season 2’s 23 episodes of Twin Peaks will come in three batches on Sunday May 7, Saturday 12 and Sunday May 13.
Viewers will be able to set their M-Net Binge recordings as soon as the Electronic Programme Guide makes content available, usually eight days before the day of broadcast. They can choose to record the entire series to compile a ‘box set’ or record individual episodes.
Erm how about a Game of Thrones weekend ka?
