About the channel
1Magic carries local drama series, telenovelas, reality shows, movies and international reality, drama and films.
The channel will broadcast series like The Fixer, How To Get Away with Murder, The Real Housewives, Power and later in 2018 the latest seasons of Ballers, Queen Sugar and Insecure.
"The name change was necessary for the brand to fit into the M-Net brand architecture where all our channels across the continent carry the name "magic", for instance Zambei Magic, Africa Magic, Maisha Magic and Mzansi Magic".
"The new name is memorable and not specific to any language group as we are appealing to a wide audience that has a viewing appetite for local and international content".
