First look: the new Vuzu Amp channel

New Vuzu spin-off channel Vuzu Amp launches on DStv in just over two weeks - on Monday, 13 October.

It goes live a week before M-Net's other new channel M-Net Edge, which launches at 19h00 the following Monday (20th). Both channels will only be available on the Premium bouquet, on channels 114 (Vuzu Amp) and 102 (M-Net Edge).

As you'll see, Vuzu Amp's line-up includes new seasons of two notable Vuzu channel shows: the South African celebrity series 10 Over 10 and Project Runway. Neither of them are airing on Vuzu in October - in fact, 10 Over 10's been made exclusively for Vuzu Amp so both shows have been ripped away from Vuzu and Compact viewers! We'll investigate further and keep you posted.

As for what we can expect from the other shows on Vuzu Amp ... here's a first look at the line-up from the highlights for the month:

Confirmed: 10 Over 10 and Project Runway will only be on Vuzu Amp when they start. They'll re-run on Vuzu afterwards.

Please find out if V Entertainment and V Prime are being moved to the channel ?

Typical Dstv behaviour: ripping content that was otherwise available to Compact viewers and then trying to re-package it as exclusive to Premium viewers. Didn't they learn from the MNet Series Zone fiasco? They can go jump for all I care at this point.

Revorushin ... we've investigated and it's overly complicated when it could be so simple.

The simple answer: V Entertainment and V Prime will be on both channels.

The complicated answer: V Prime's going to change name on Vuzu to V Lite - it's going to remain V Prime on Vuzu AMP. Apparently the only difference between the two is that V Lite isn't HD - because it's on Vuzu - and V Prime will be in HD because Vuzu AMP's HD.
