M-Net and MultiChoice to run a M-Net Movies Game On film channel for 3 weeks from mid-February 2019 featuring iconic sports movies and documentaries.

M-Net's M-Net Movies division will be doing a M-Net Movies Game On pop-up channel from just over three weeks from 22 February 2019 to 10 March comprised of iconic sports movies and documentaries.

The Game On sports movie channel will be MultiChoice's first pop-up TV channel for 2019 and will bring DStv subscribers sports heroes - real and invented - on M-Net Movies Game On, showcasing people battling against the odds under trying circumstances, with dreams of glory.

M-Net Movies will release a list of films and the schedule later early in 2019 for M-Net Movies Game On that will run on DStv channel 109. It's not yet clear which DStv subscribers will be having access to the channel.

"It comes as no surprise that sports movies are among many people's all-time film favourites," says Lani Lombard, M-Net's head of publicity.

"They tell universal tales of the human spirit overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles - of the underdog rising to glory, or team camaraderie winning the day against more skillful rivals. The M-Net Movies Game On pop-up channel will be a knockout."
