Sony Movie Channel is launching on Freeview and Virgin
Sony Movie Channel will launch on Freeview and Virgin from tomorrow (January 10).
Sony’s flagship movies channel is currently only available on Sky 323, but all this will change from tomorrow as Sony Movie Channel replaces MovieMix on Freeview 32 and Virgin 425.
Freeview and Virgin movie fans will be able to tune into Godzilla at 9pm, followed by Predator at 11pm. That’s one epic first night of movies!
The rebooted Sony Movie Channel has an impressive 14 channel premieres in store for its first month. As well as Godzilla, the channel will premiere films such as Twilight, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Maid In Manhattan, The Mask of Zorro and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon for the first time.
The revamped channel promises to be all-inclusive of viewer film tastes, hosting iconic movie greats alongside contemporary classics and everything in-between.
Kate Marsh, executive vice president of Sony Pictures Television’s Western Europe International Networks division said: “Sony has a rich cinematic heritage. With our knowledge and love of movies we want to present the best possible movie channel for everyone across the UK and build on our wide-ranging, successful portfolio.
“The cinematic new look reflects the new channel content offering – favourite movies you will know and love.”
Sony Movie Channel will launch on Freeview 32 and Virgin 425 on January 10. It is currently also available on Sky 323.
