BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | December 19, 2010

Times Television Network has launched its latest offering, MOVIES NOW in HD today giving the viewers an opportunity to experience the best of audio-video standards for the first time in India!

Speaking on the launch of the channel Sunil Lulla, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Times Television Network, said “TIMES TELEVISION NETWORK is proud to announce the launch of another contemporary brand – MOVIES NOW. It complements the urban focus of the network, where it has met with great success via TIMES NOW, ET NOW and zoOm. MOVIES NOW challenges the status quo of the category to ensure the audience the best of entertainment. MOVIES NOW with its first of a kind; state-of-the-art HD Broadcast facility will furnish upscale Indian audiences with clearer, crisper picture quality, superlative sound quality and a wider viewing experience.”

Further commenting Ajay Trigunayat, Channel Head, MOVIES NOW said, “We have aligned the channel to be in sync with viewer preferences to consume Hollywood movies on Indian Television. We strongly recognize that Television movie consumption is significantly different from Theatrical movie consumption! Thereby, with exhaustive quantitative & qualitative research & analysis, we have put together a very well thought through Movies Library & FPC to resonate Indian viewer preferences who love to watch many Popular Hollywood Blockbuster titles again & again & again, to name a few - Rocky 1-6, Pink Panther 1&2, I Robot, Night at the Museum, Never Back Down, True Lies, Titanic, 36th Chamber of the Shaolin etc.. The piece-de-resistance to the Indian viewer - they will now get to watch their most preferred movies in incredible High Definition (HD) with Stunning Pictures in 1080i & Awesome 5.1 Surround Sound!”

With a focused objective to enthrall the Indian viewers through the best of Hollywood Blockbusters coupled with phenomenal picture and sound quality, MOVIES NOW will enhance the viewing experience with a wide aspect ratio of 16:9, which is naturally suited to the human eye.

MOVIES NOW will be available across analog, digital cable and DTH platforms throughout the pop strata of 1mn+ towns in India. One can now have a theatre like movie watching experience in the comfort of their home!

  • skumar- 9 years ago

    Is it a paid service?

  • skumar- 9 years ago

    Does it require HD set top box?

  • sam- 9 years ago

    create more adds about your channel like HBO/star-movies so that cable opp-raters would be forced to give the channel to the public viewers.

  • Venkatesh- 9 years ago

  • mangai- 9 years ago

    ya it goes free with the cable operaters and is available from 19th. actually the clarity is good but they are giving subtitles in a weak small fonts whereas sony is doing a good job by giving in a big legible bold fonts that are always visible and the time duration of display has to be improved. they can even use the scrolling system of display which will be easy to read and this scroolling system can also be extended to be available by all the news channels where we slow readers find it dificult to read and even it sometimes the present case irritates our eyes will the chanels hear my views?

    What's the point of launching a HD channel when you can't even ensure that the channel is beamed across HD providers like Tata Sky?

    Its bullshit... A big companey like times television network has launched Big hyped HD movi channel but have no information on which DTH service it is available and at what number. Its mentioned to sms at 58888. Its been a week i have sent sms..but nobody has contacted to give more info on how to susbscribe for this channel. Similarly i can publish an add that i have made biggest aircraft which flies without fuel. But i dont leave any proof of what and whereabout. Crap !!
