In 2000, A single series channel was introduced as a sister channel to the original M-Net channel. On 9 July 2013, this channel was split into three, namely M-Net Series Showcase, which was broadcast in high definition, previously served as the primary series channel on which most new content unique to Series was broadcast, M-Net Series Reality broadcast talk shows and other reality media, and M-Net Series Zone which served as a catch-up channel, and featured previous seasons of shows. Several TV shows also ran back-to-back in marathon blocks.
On 11 September 2014, it was announced that Series Showcase and Series Reality would be discontinued and replaced with two new channels, Vuzu Amp and M-Net Edge, on 20 and 13 October, respectively. Only one channel of the original three, M-Net Series Zone, remained. The standalone channel is reminiscent of the initial channel, in that it airs shows that previously aired on the main M-Net channel. It was rebranded M-Net City in 2016
On 31 March 2017 all the programs seen on M-Net Edge were put on M-Net as part of a merge. Programs seen on M-Net Edge are viewable later on various other channels from M-Net. Later on, Vuzu Amp was rebranded to 1Magic.
