Honestly speaking they should have made the channel available to lower packages only just like they did with kyknet lekker and Moja 99. I mean it is clear that this is another rerun channel similar to 163, 165 & 173. The only show that's exclusive to the channel is Ellen DeGeneres Show which according to the EPG shows that they'll be starting the show from episode 1 of season 18. This is disappointing and disrespectful because the show is currently towards the end of season 18 on vuzu (which is already behind as the US is currently airing S19) I mean is there any reason why they'd want to start the show from episode 1 after airing many episodes? I give up on Dstv. They really don't give a damn about their customers. I was supper excited for the laugh of this channel thinking they'll move some of the shows seen on 101 and 1magic there to create space for new shows on premium, clearly I was wrong. They always say "premium content" is expensive but they can't even get one show as express from US. Now we gonna wait 2 years to get season 41 of survivor. I give up

@tman_1 there's a reason 116 & 115 are merging soon which is streaming. As some are aware Disney is taking their content which is seen on cable and moving it their streaming service Disney+ meaning M-Net's International lineup is slowly getting weaker so they're creating Lioness, Legacy and The Real Housewives as a means to keep the content afloat and fill the gap their current suppliers will inflict on their channels. With that in mind, why are you surprised that 99% of the channel is reruns? Remember Compact+ customers don't have access to M-Net which is where part of Me content resides so I can only take you up on the 163 part once all that local content moves there expect the viewership to plummet I always wondered why 163 is necessary the kids block is outdated, everything there is a year old. In regards to Ellen you know the history even VUZU tends to do reruns of past episodes as they're still awaiting on the rest of the episodes or the star is busy on her other endeavours. You have a right to be upset all I'm doing is helping you see the bigger picture.
