ABOUT

Vuzu was a youth-focused entertainment channel for young Africans. The programming was a combination of big name international series and locally produced shows.

The channel featured a wide variety of genres including drama, reality, comedy, animation, extreme sports, gaming and magazine-style shows.

The channel launched in mid-2009, replacing GO. This occurred during the second phase of the network's reshuffle of its youth channel offering.

Vuzu was typically geared towards the 14-23 age demographic.

Vuzu's programming mix included international shows like Gossip Girl, Entourage, The Simpsons, Kyle XY, South Park as well as new locally produced shows like The Verge – a show devoted to all things high-tech and gaming.

There was also V Entertainment – a daily round up of the hottest local and international celeb gossip; and Scar Tissue - which consisted of various stunts performed by a professional crew across a wide spectrum of everyday situations.

This channel was geared at increasing interactivity through locally produced content which is also available online. The channel provided a continental platform for young people to have access to entertainment on their phones, PCs and television sets.

In October 2016 the channel was upgraded from SD to HDTV (720p).

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