MNET recently bought Generations on SABC1 and Isidingo on SABC3. Both soaps will be aired on MNET’s AfricaMagic channel.
Generations will be shown on weekdays at 21:30 on AfricaMagic Entertainment (channel 128 on DStv) with repeats the following day at 13:00, and a Generations omnibus on Saturdays.
Isidingo will be shown on weekdays at 22:00 on AfricaMagic Entertainment with repeats the following day at 16:00, and an Isidingo omnibus on Saturdays.
“The fact that we will be screening the latest episodes shortly after the SABC is a great benefit to our audiences,” said M-Net Africa’s managing editor, Biola Alabi.
“The structure of the mining community from the miners to executive management reflects South African society as it is in the new millennium,” she said of Isidingo.
“As in all soaps, rivalry, treachery and blackmail between siblings, friends and foes alike make Generations one of the most forceful dramas South Africa has ever produced,” she continued.
