PIONEERING KNOWN GODS (article first published : 2005-11-20)

In a first for South Africa, M-Nets popular local drama Known Gods is now available for download or streaming via broadband on the Internet. Fans who miss their weekly Thursday night Known Gods fix will be able to catch up at lunchtime (13h00) every Friday, and those who have not yet seen the winelands murder mystery series can download every episode and watch the entire series at their leisure.

The service is available for free to MWEB or Tiscali subscribers via www.mweb.com

M-Net has been offering local productions like Carte Blanche and Egoli via broadband to expatriate South Africans for some time at subscription service KuduClub.com, says M-Net CEO Glen Marques. As broadband starts to roll out in South Africa, we plan to do the same locally. M-Net has always been a leader when it comes to utilising new technologies and were proud to be the first operator in South Africa to offer premium television content on the Internet so soon after the show has been broadcast, says Marques.

Kim Reid, CEO of MWEB says this is a big step in delivering M-Net content on new platforms. We are very excited about collaborating with M-Net and plan to provide our customers with more broadband content offerings in future, he says.

M-Nets very first Local Drama series, Known Gods traces the trials of the families on four wine farms and features a stellar cast headed by Sandra Prinsloo, Neels van Jaarsveld, Antoinette Kellerman, Abduragman Adams, Aletta Bezuidenhout, Jan Ellis, Danny Keogh, Susan Danford, Cedwyn Joel, Celeste Matthews, and Michael Atkinson.
