Default M-Net 101 now brings you best of the best entertainment ON THE HOUR

M-Net 101 now brings you best of the best entertainment ON THE HOUR

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. Come 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.

For the latest show information and schedules, go to mnet.tv. Or, follow M-Net on Twitter @MNet (#MNet101) and Facebook on the official “M-Net” page.

Well happy that 101 and 103 now align in terms of start times, less recording conflicts. At least until 103 makes changes again, without notice.

Must also say, I prefer this layout to the Highlights page, sans the was at times at the end. Just an FYI...

I'm already seeing quite an improved difference with ability to schedule across the various channels, even with some things on the doccie channels for example

Let's hope this is never changed again, otherwise the channel(s) then deserve to be boiled alive! Just saying...

So, a couple of things:

NCIS is moving from Saturdays to Wednesdays, replacing Kevin Can Wait and Man with a Plan. Where have these moved to? Can't see anything on the schedule provided and they each have at least 8/9 episodes to go.

With the comedy slot being dropped from weekdays, 2 and half hours, and only 1 hour being added on Saturday, we have lost 1 and half hours programming with this change.

With NCIS being replaced on Saturday by "reality", we lose another hour of series entertainment. So this change has resulted in 2 and half hours of lost series entertainment.

The Saturday night foreign slot still reflects Peoples Icons on the 9th

And just to clarify, is there 3 hours of X Factor UK, 2 on Friday night and 1 on Saturday?

Just tried searching for the first one on the online guide, looks like its new 101 premiere slot is Sundays @ 16:00.
