Adrenaline-driven channel on DStv features action-packed movies and series.

The MNet Action channel on DStv features action-packed movies and series.

Southland is a fast-moving drama that will take viewers inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families. John Cooper is a seasoned Los Angeles cop, assigned to train young rookie Ben Sherman. His honest, no-nonsense approach to the job leaves Sherman questioning whether or not he has what it takes to become a police officer.

Starting on January 20 at 18h00 is the first season of Stargate Universe which follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth.

Series returning on Action include Medium, a drama series about Allison DuBois, a strong-willed young mother of three, a devoted wife and law student who begins to suspect that she can talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams, and read people's thoughts.

Rush is an Australian police drama that gives an inside look at a Tactical Response Team based in Melbourne, focused on preventing crime rather than chasing criminals.

MNetAction will also host a Chuck Norris Festival in January with movies such as Missing in Action; Missing in Action 2; Invasion USA and Code of Silence as wel as a Jurassic Park Festival
