It is only possible to watch some movie channels if you have the Premium or Compact Plus packages. Subscribers that have the Compact package nevertheless get access to a large number of channels.

eExtra (channel 138), eMovies Extra (channel 140), and eMovies (channel 138) are no longer available on DStv Compact. M-Net City was removed from the list of channels and replaced with ME (channel 115). This action was taken to cut down on the number of movies that are shown on television on a regular basis.
