BREAKING. Mzansi Bioskop launching as a new DStv channel from M-Net on 10 September on channel 164 at 18:00.

Mzansi Bioskop (DStv 164) will start as a new 24-hour African movie channel on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform on 10 September TV with Thinus can report from sources who confirm the news.

The news of Mzansi Bioskop starting a yet another of the "Mzansi" channels produced and packaged by M-Net for MultiChoice was first scooped by TVSA today, reporting that Mzansi Bioskop will be "dedicated to airing locally produced films".

Sources tell me Mzansi Bioskop is set to go live on 10 September at 18:00.

As per TVSA who first reported it, my sources confirm: the set of Lokshin Bioscope films - made on the cheap African films - will premiere on this channel first before moving to the other "Mzansi" themed specialist channels from M-Net.

No word yet on which of all of the DStv bouquets Mzansi Bioskop will be available.
