Cape Town –  Titanic is one of the 100 films that is included in M-Net Movies' new pop-up channel, M-Net Movies Bucket List (DStv 109), that will run on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform from 30 October until 2 December.

The M-Net Movies Bucket List channel will start on 18:00 on Thursday 30 October, with a new film daily at 18:00 and on weekends just before or after 16:00 depending on the duration and age-restriction of the films.

The broadcaster says the 100 films were chosen and compiled by an expert team of film fanatics but didn't provide names. The channel will be keeping the Top 10 films a secret and these 10 movies will only be revealed on the day of broadcast.

M-Net says for a film to be included it "had to be entrenched in popular culture, define an era, shift mediums, uproot the status quo, delight a variety of audiences, impress critics worldwide and be able to reignite your love for movies".

"With the M-Net Movies Bucket List we're taking the pop-up concept to the next level," says Jan du Plessis, director of M-Net channels.

"Never before have viewers been able to see so many magnificent, game-changing movies in one place over such a short time."

Jan du Plessis says "we all have our bucket lists based on our own taste and we believe it will be great fun for movie fans to compare notes and see whether their favourites have made it onto the pop-up channel".

Besides the 100 films, the channel will broadcast "Bonus Features" films that will exist out of additional "classics" that can't be ignored "but will appeal to niche audiences" says M-Net.

These classics will include films like Mary Poppins, Casablanca and Breakfast at Tiffany's.
