You're reading it here first.
Get ready for some more logo changes and on-screen channel ident changes in 2011. M-Net ones.
M-Net channel logos not affected and which will remain as they are now are main M-Net channel (DStv 101), M-Net Stars (DStv 105) and M-Net HD (DStv 170). Multiple sources at various levels at the various channels as well as MultiChoice indicated to me that MultiChoice requested the change. I don't want to quote any of the specific and broad pick of people I spoke to but they all say the same two things: Number one is that M-Net wants to be bold(er) with showing off the ''M''-ribbon device of its logo in general. Number two is that there's now a feeling from MultiChoice and now within M-Net to have the various M-Net channels not necessarily look exactly the same, but have more overall, easier and identifiable brand cohesion. Basically the M-Net channels have to all look as if they're all a part of the same family.
