Who knows when the tradition of the Sunday night movie started in South Africa? It now feels firmly entrenched as the perfect way to round off a weekend, with the Carte Blanche closing credits as its calling card.
But if you can’t watch the M-Net movie at 20:00 on Sunday night, don’t despair – DStv Premium subscribers can stream all the Sunday night movies wherever they are on the DStv Now app.
(It’s worth noting that not all the Sunday night movies quite make the cut as a Plum Pick, but we include them all here for you because they’re always fan faves.)
