Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I think they should have put Sony Movie Channel in HD on Virgin Media and Sky, leaving Movie Mix in SD on Freeview.

Many other TV networks keep their main brands off Freeview by using another names, such as Discovery (Quest), Turner (TruTV), A+E (Blaze), FOX (YourTV) and Sky (Pick and Challenge).

It's only Movie Mix under a different name, which we already have, so nothing extra. Interestingly though, Movie Mix was never on Freesat and Sony Movie Channel won't be either.

Trutv and Blaze may not be around much longer. Sony movies is available for free on sattelite you just need a viewing card making it ftv not fta (i think i got that right way around lol), movie mix was also on freesat and sky under the name more>novies was quite a while back though.

I'm aware of TruTV not meeting the overly high expectations that Turner had, but where have you read about Blaze being at risk?

I know all of the background to Sony Movie Channel, More Than Movies and Movie Mix. I'm surprised that Sony are putting their brand onto Freeview, when the others are not.

Just a hunch about blaze not seen anything yet.
Sony probably see freeview as a chance to reach out to a wider audience maybe they'll launch a premier product in the future and use sony movies to advertise that product.

Movie Mix was doing that job already, as an outlet on Freeview and a platform to advertise their other services. Adding the Sony Movie Channel to Freeview just reduces the value of the core brand. The premier product could have been an upgraded HD version of the Sony Movie Channel.

The consolidation of their wider network is coming together nicely now, with both True Movies 2 and True Drama gone, making way for +1's. Their children's channels are in great shape. The music stations could do with some attention though. Movies4Men is their other free movie channel and it does pretty well.
