James Bond, the savviest super spy in the world of cinema, has been handed an intriguing assignment: to infiltrate the homes of DStv Premium customers, and keep them spellbound for two weeks. From Thursday, 23 February until Sunday, 5 March, M-Net Movies will be screening every single Bond film ever made - from 1962’s vintage Dr No to the latest explosive big-budget blockbuster Spectre (2015) - on an extra-special M-Net Movies pop-up channel. All the action will play out on channel 109 on DStv Premium. It can also be streamed live on DStv Now and enjoyed at your convenience on DStv Catch Up Plus, which is available with a DStv Wifi Connector.
The M-Net Movies James Bond pop-up channel pays tribute to one of Hollywood’s biggest movie franchises, celebrating 55 years of Hollywood’s most charming secret agent. Over the course of two weeks, fans will be able to experience all the dapper tuxedos, iconic fast cars, sultry Bond girls, exotic locations, mind-blowing gadgets, deadly villains, unforgettable music, incredible title sequences and martinis… shaken, not stirred, of course.
The explosive 24 Bond films will be screened in chronological order with Sean Connery, the first actor to incarnate author Ian Fleming’s suave creation, embarking on the first mission on Thursday, 23 February at 10:10. Thereafter, he will hand the Bond baton over to Roger Moore and the rest of the Bonds until Daniel Craig has dismantled Spectre on Sunday, 26 February 2017 at 20:00. Then the entire sequence will play out again from Monday, 27 February at 10:00 until Thursday, 2 March at 23:20 before those who missed their appointments with the secret agent during the day can enjoy the full marathon of all the films from Friday, 3 March at 10:00 until Sunday, 5 March at 13:30.
As a bonus, four documentaries, namely Now Pay Attention 007 (2000); Best Ever Bond (2002); Bond Girls Are Forever (2012) and Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (2012) take a peek behind the scenes - if they can breach the tight security that befits the life of a secret agent, that is. Remember, in the world of espionage, secrecy is everything!
