The almighty DC Universe explodes onto DStv Premium with a massive M-Net Movies Pop-Up channel
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Heck no, it’s Superman, and he’s heading straight for channel 109 on DStv! And hot on his trail is a flock of some of the most iconic superheroes and their equally famous – or infamous – frenemies – from Batman, Catwoman and The Joker to Wonder Woma and the Green Lantern.
M-Net Movies has assembled an explosive DC Heroes pop-up channel for DStv Premium customers in November.
The M-Net Movies DC Heroes pop-up channel will start with a bang on channel 109 on Friday 9 November at 11:50 and continue to spread almighty mayhem for ten days until Sunday 18 November, shortly before midnight.
“DStv Premium customers can look forward to an astonishing selection of movies, most featuring a world in dire need of a hero or heroine with superpowers and an iron will to defeat evil,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “You won’t find a channel with such a comprehensive list of DC Comics films anywhere else. Fans of superhero films are in for the thrill of a lifetime.”
Among the highlights on the M-Net Movies DC Comics pop-up channel, the last son of Krypton becomes Earth’s champion; a dark knight strikes fear into evildoers’ hearts; an Amazonian princess fights for justice; an intergalactic police force defends the universe with sheer willpower; and an antihero from the wild west is spurred on by revenge.
