HistoryEdit

The channel was launched in 2000, as M-Net Series, as a soster channel to the original M-Net channel. On 9 July 2013, this channel was split into three[2], namely M-Net Series Showcase, which was the premium series channel which had new series releases, M-Net Series Reality broadcast talk shows and other reality media and M-Net Series Zone which served as a rerun channel, and featured previous seasons of shows and back-to-back marathon blocks. On 11 September 2014, it was announced that Series Showcase and Series Reality would replaced with two new channels[3], Vuzu Amp, the premium version of Vuzu and M-Net Edge, a primetime channel providing a stronger offering than M-Net, on 20 and 13 October, respectively. M-Net Series Zone was later renamed M-Net City in 2016

On 31 March 2017, M-Net Edge was absorbed by M-Net to create a supersized channel.

In February 2018, Vuzu Amp was rebranded to One Magic[4].
