Although more and more Kenyans are home-bound during this time, there’s no need for international series fanatics to fear long evenings of boredom.
DStv has conjured up a must-watch pop-up channel with only the best of the best content from the HBO stable. M-Net Binge – The Home of HBO, channel 114 on DStv Premium and Compact Plus, showcases full seasons of edgy, award-winning series as well as a selection of riveting documentaries and HBO Original films.
M-Net Binge – The Home of HBO kicks off on Friday 27 March at 19:00 CAT. Thereafter it will be available seven days a week, between 18:00 CAT to 06:00 CAT, Mondays to Sundays. Why 12 hours only? series aficionados may ask. Only because of the racy nature of the channel and age-restricted material not suitable for daytime viewing.
The weekday schedule for M-Net Binge – Home of HBO has been carefully curated to create appointment viewing. You will find the same series in the same time slot, on the hour, Mondays to Fridays.
From series like The Newsroom, which earned leading man Jeff Daniels several TV gongs, to executive producers Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s epic war drama Band of Brothers and the Dwayne Johnson comedy series Ballers and the mega-hit True Detective. Not to forget the biggest HBO series of all time Game of Thrones, which will be screened from 23:00 CAT.
On Saturdays, up until 21:00 CAT, the line-up is packed with thought-provoking documentaries, followed by two episodes of Succession at 21:00 CAT. On Sundays from 20:00, there are also two episodes of another series that has been exclusive to streaming service Showmax until now: His Dark Materials. That’s followed on Sundays by a super stack (6 episodes) of classic Sex & The City, starting at 22:00 CAT.
As a special treat for night owls, the next item on air is the HBO film at 01:00 CAT. Viewers can catch documentaries on Saturdays between 19:00 CAT and 20:30 CAT and Sundays at 19:00 CAT. The unmissable documentary picked for Saturday 27 March is Ice on Fire. Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, it investigates solutions to try and reverse the effects of climate change while time is ticking. The film this Sunday is Deadwood, the movie HBO created to conclude the hit series from the 1990s.
M-Net Binge – The Home of HBO will also be available on DStv Catch Up Plus on connected decoders. Fans can follow all the breaking news around the pop-up channel on the M-Net Website, and join the conversation with #mnetbinge on Twitter (@MNet), Instagram (@mnettv) and Facebook (@MNet).
