ABOUT

M-Net City replaced M-Net Series Zone on Channel 115 on 6 April 2015, with largely the same programming, albeit it in a different scheduling structure.

The channel repeated international content previously broadcast in first-run by M-Net channels for the "Premium" bouquet subscribers (M-Net, M-Net Edge and Vuzu Amp), a line-up which began with comedies such as Modern Family and Last Man Standing, talk shows and Chicago PD, a crime and drama series.

The channel also screened blockbuster films on Saturdays and Sundays and binge viewing with back-to-back episodes over the weekends.

There are also fixed times for shows which air from Monday to Friday, borrowing a model established with the launch of M-Net Edge in 2014.

At launch, the schedule for the channel was as follows:

Weekdays, 17h00 - 19h00
Talk shows

Weekdays, 19h00 - 19h30
Comedies

Weekdays, 20h00 - 21h00
Action and crime series

Saturdays and Sundays
A variety of movies in early primetime; from 19h30 series binges.

On Friday 1 July, 2016, the channel was upgraded from SD to HDTV (720p).

M-Net City was discontinued on 29 October, 2021, when the channel merged with Vuzu to form new channel Me.
