Soon after the fun-filled M-Net 30th Birthday BlockParty channel draws to a close on DStv Premium at the end of October, the iconic eight-film Harry Potter series will take over the entertainment on channel 109. M-Net will treat viewers to a special M-Net Movies Harry Potter pop-up extravaganza from Friday 4 November until Sunday 13 November. Leading up to the worldwide release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, an all-new adventure returning us to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling, all M-Net customers will be able to watch all eight Harry Potter films. In addition to these eight films, the M-Net Movies Harry Potter Pop-Up channel will be packed with specials and features around the making of this hugely successful movie franchise. The channel will run for 17 hours per day from 6:00 until 23:00.
Every night at 20:00 viewers will be captivated by the magic of the Harry Potter stories and transported into the spellbinding world of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The films will be screened in this time-slot each day in chronological order. But, if you can’t wait another day to watch the next film in the series, you can watch back-to-back screenings throughout the day.
“By creating this channel, it proves yet again that M-Net allows our viewers in Africa to stay connected to the latest entertainment trends and buzz across the globe,” says Jan du Plessis, Director: M-Net Channels.
Adapted from J.K. Rowling’s bestselling series of seven books, the extraordinary Harry Potter films feature Daniel Radcliffe in the titular role. His best friends at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, are portrayed by Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
For more than a decade, Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter films have captivated the hearts and imaginations of children and adults all over the globe with enchanting tales of magic, adventure and friendship.
