Cape Town - From Thursday, 18 April, 1Magic (DStv 103) will be accessible to DStv Compact Plus customers. 

The channel, which was previously only available to DStv Premium subscribers, hosts shows such as The River, Being Bonang, black-ish, Power and other reality TV shows and series. 

The package currently goes for R519 per month, R649 on a price lock deal for 24 months, and at R5 709 as a once off annual deal. 

M-Net CEO Nkateko Mabaso said, "Last year, we announced that 1Magic would replace VUZU AMP to make the channel a new home of entertainment for our DStv Premium viewers. This was informed by our drive to invest in local content by showcasing local hit shows alongside international content. 

"Now as our own way to turn up the heat this winter and keep our viewers on their couches, we have decided to give an added incentive for our DStv Compact Plus subscribers to bring the best entertainment to their living rooms," he said. 

According to Multichoice publicist Ntabiseng Motsei, "In addition to the content already available on the channel, DStv Compact Plus customers will now be able to catch the brand-new reality show One Night with My Ex, where the complex theme of love is explored. Saucy attempts to rekindle the flames of lost love for lonely singles, scorned lovers and deserted dreamers are simply not to be missed."
