As part of its new line-up, it will debut a weekly show from US-based pro wrestling organisation All Elite Wrestling (AEW) called AEW Dynamite. It will launch on February 5 at 13.20 (CAT).

Elsewhere, the slate features a mixture of action, romance and comedy films, including Splash, Best Man Holiday, Crank: High Voltage, Point Break, Malcolm X, Just Cause, ET, Gladiator, Straight Up and other TNT original movies.

Guillermo Farré, head of WarnerMedia’s general entertainment channels across France, Iberia and Africa, said: “TNT is excited to usher in a new era in entertainment that is attuned to our audience needs and appetite.

“Despite how far we’ve come, we remain steadfastly dedicated to giving our African audience premium content, and the launch of AEW Dynamite and the channel refresh bear testament of this.”

TNT Africa airs on DStv Channel 137. The refresh also includes a new logo.
