After the launch of the M-Net movie channels in October, DStv will be launching two more entertainment channels, Blackbelt TV and True Movies 1, on Tuesday.
Blackbelt TV is a 24-hour martial arts television network airing martial arts fights, series, movies and animé and will be available on DStv channel 129.
The channel will be available across all bouquets on DStv ( Access, Family, Compact, Compact Plus and Premium). The channel will feature classic martial arts movies, great mixed martial arts fights from around the globe and MMA lifestyle oriented interviews from Hollywood. Programming will include the screening of "3 Rounds With", a half-hour interview show where stars stop by in a fun, casual way and talk entertainment and combat sports.
Guests will include director Brett Ratner, actors John Cusack and Jackie Chan, and warriors like Evander Holyfield, Dolph Lundgren, and Manny Pacquiao.
MultiChoice Africa CEO, Nico Meyer, says: "We are pleased to be launching Blackbelt TV and True Movies 1. We are certain that the launch of these two channels will provide subscribers with expanded viewing options and bring them greater entertainment variety."
