New M-Net Stars logo could signal the movie channel's high definition aspirations for 2011.

The beautiful, much-improved new channel logo for M-Net Stars (DStv 105) could signal that the movie channel supplied to MultiChoice's DStv by pay broadcaster M-Net is also getting ready to become a high definition (HD) channel in future, although more in a preparatory stage than actual imminent upgrade.

The TV channel logos of various M-net supplied channels such as M-Net Action (DStv 106), M-Net Movies 1 (DStv 103) and M-Net Movies 2 (DStv 104) changed recently, with M-Net Action and M-Net Stars taking on a more overt 3D appearance.

M-Net Stars changed its channel logo just a few months ago in April - just to unveil another new one this October. The latest M-Net Stars logo is the best one yet and reflect a contemporary classic look that now employs an elongated logo instead of the boxy previous versions. The logo has a high sheen, reflective look, giving the impression of polished crystal, with the stylized, semi-transparent flowing ribbon design of the ''M'' in a deep cobalt blue, touching the word ''stars''. Kept and incorporated in the new logo is the signature slanted ''t''.

The bigger longer M-Net Stars logo above, now in high gloss and having moved away from its former ''cartooney'' look and feel, would now be use-ready for a mirror HD channel, should M-Net Stars HD possibly be added in future to the DStv bouquet.
