New DSTV Channel Numbers


Due to the newly packaged HD offering from DSTV, they’ve had to shuffle a few of their channels around.

The Universal Channel and Studio Universal are both being upgraded to HD from today (1st October 2012). With these being upgraded, the following channels have been removed/ replaced:

  • M-Net Movies 1
  • M-Net Movies 2
  • M-Net HD

With these removed, a total of 6 new channels are being made available, in HD for DSTV Premium subscribers:

  • M-Net Movies Premiere
  • M-Net Movies Action+
  • M-Net Movies Family
  • M-Net Movies Comedy
  • M-Net Movies Drama & Romance
  • M-Net Movies Showcase

As of today, you’ll need to punch in these channel numbers to watch TV. Now is a good idea to bookmark this page!

The kids, music, new and religion genre blocks will not be affected by the move.
