“Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.” You’ll need to sit down for this: M-Net Movies is starting a Star Wars pop-up channel on DStv at the end of the month which will show all the movies and other Star Wars programming.
Many Bothans died to bring us this information, but we can reveal that coming to all DStv Premium subscribers (and possibly those with a Holocron device) is a very special Star Wars pop-up channel from M-Net and MultiChoice which will start on 31 August on channel 109.
The Star Wars pop-up channel will show all six of the existing Star Wars movies from George Lucas, as well as incredible additional Star Wars content linked to George Lucas’s amazing galaxy far, far away.
The Star Wars pop-up channel, secured by M-Net’s Movies division for DStv is being billed an African television first and will start with a movie per day at 7.30pm (as well as at 6am on subsequent days).
The Star Wars pop-up channel comes before the highly anticipated release of the new Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens on 18 December from The Walt Disney Company. — Channel24
