The English movies space is set to witness an interesting battle following the launch of Star Movies Select HD and rebranding of Times Network’s MN+ channel. Both channels have fortified their content line-up to attract the movie aficionados.
A day after the launch of Star Movies Select HD, MN+ has unveiled its July fare, which will be offered under five themes – Centre Stage, Opening Night, Hollywood Select, Great Adaptations and The Academy Club. Through these five categories, MN+ will be offering its viewers critically acclaimed as well as popular movies of English cinema.
Vivek Srivastava, Senior Vice-Pesident and Head, English Entertainment Cluster, Times Network, commented, “MN+ has been hand-crafted for not just discerning movie lovers, but for cineastes as well. MN+ will showcase movies that are universally celebrated and debated. Keeping to this promise, the highlights for the month are: ‘Sweeney Todd’, ‘Gran Torino’, ‘About Schmidt’, ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, ‘Poltergeist’, ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Poseidon’, ‘Woman in Black’, ‘The Golden Compass’, ‘Don’t Say a Word’, ‘Dreamcatcher’, ‘Payback’, ‘Runaway Jury’, ‘The Big Lebowski’ and a host of other popular films.”
Reiterating the channel philosophy, Srivastava added, “Our viewers are a focused lot who, by virtue of their intelligence and sensitivity, have the time and ability to appreciate only the best that life has to offer – they seek to fill moments of leisure with the greatest value. MN+ is for those premium audiences that have the temperament to be choosy about what life has to offer and have evolved to value only the best, and so are our movie offerings.”
