M-Net, or Electronic Media Network, is a subscription-based TV network broadcasting in South Africa. It was started in 1986 by Naspers and it broadcasts local and international programs such as children’s series, general entertainment, and sports and movies. The network’s TV signal is normally encrypted, but it also broadcasts “free to air” shows during its 5 pm and 7 pm slot until the slot was reformatted in April 2007.
One of it’s most popular, breakthrough shows was the award-winning Carte Blanche, an actuality program that exposed many well-known cases of human rights abuse, consumer affair scandals and corruption. To date, it is offering the M-Net Magic in Motion Internship Programme that aims to develop and impart strategically essential skills in the industry.
