Vuzu's long-running signature show V-Entertainment is no more.

Our team has been pouring over the schedules for both Vuzu and Vuzu Amp for July and V-Entertainment is nowhere to seen.

The series has been serving up a daily dose of entertainment news at 18h00 on Vuzu since 2009 and on Vuzu Amp since 2014 so it's disappearance is as gawk-worthy as a celeb without make-up.

We've asked the Vuzu team what's happening and they say they will have comment for us by this evening.

We'll keep you posted.

This statement just in from Vuzu/M-Net:

There’s something new and exciting cooking in the V-Entertainment kitchen! After over 2000 episodes and almost six years* on our screens, V-Entertainment, the celebrity news and variety show, will be going on a break from 30 June.  

Fans need not despair though, as the changes coming in August will reflect our aim of being at the forefront of innovative entertainment, "by constantly improving and reinventing our content," said Reneilwe Sema, M-Net’s Director of Local Entertainment Channels.

“V-Entertainment broke boundaries and introduced audiences to fresh new talent – from the artists uncovered, to our very own presenters who set the bar every day. Entertainment culture is always evolving, and we must change right along with it," added Sema. 

Look out for a one-hour V-Entertainment special this Friday (30 June) at 6PM on VUZU and VUZU AMP.


*The show first debuted in July 2009 so it's been on air for eight years.

This is disconcerting. I watch V-Entertainment every evening. I'm confused, is the show totally scrapped or is it coming back with a major facelift?

@dezi according to Tv with Thinus it will be revamped later as a weekly show .Vuzu as a channel has horrible rating .they must be working on something major to bring back viewers
