About

M-Net Series Reality is a defunct South African digital satellite television channel which was part of the "M-Net Series" stable of M-Net shows on the DStv platform which connected the viewer to "big characters and big names on television".

AVAILABILITY

DStv: Channel 113
Bouquet: Premium

PICTURE FORMAT

576i (SDTV, 4:3) - Terrestrial
576i (SDTV, 16:9) - DStv
1080i (HDTV, 16:9) - DStv

M-Net Series Showcase was one of three channels that arose from the now-defunct M-Net Series channel in July 2013, the other two being M-Net Series Reality and M-Net Series Zone.

M-Net Showcase was the high-definition playground of the series world's latest big-name shows with all its flamboyant characters. The channel features fresh, superior quality content in all popular genres - from comedy and drama to fantasy, crime and suspense.

These first-class shows include new seasons of Mad Men, Criminal Minds and Defiance, and all the latest showstoppers from the USA.

Most of the series could be seen on African TV for the first time, close to their US debuts.

The channel closed down on Sunday 19 October 2014, at 23h59, along with premium sister channel M-Net Series Reality. They were replaced by two new premium, HD channels in the M-Net stable: Vuzu Amp and M-Net Edge. The reason for their closure was that M-Net felt their premium content was being limited by genre-based channels.
