New Freesat channel to launch – Men and Movies

A new channel from the Movies4Men stable, will be launched soon on Freesat.
It has been annnounced that that “Men & Movies” will launch their new channel on Freesat on the 4th October 2010.
It will be available on Freesat channel 143.
At first it looks like this new channel will be a Freesat exclusive channel, as will appear on the Freesat EPG, but looks that, at first, it will not be added to the Sky EPG.

However, Sky owners should still be able to watch this channel by adding it to the “Other Channels” lists by adding the channel via Services using frequency 11426 H 27500 2/3 – (although some Sky boxes, like Sky+ boxes, are not allowing you to add this for whatever reason!)

Currently the Freesat EPG shows programme information starting next Monday 4th October.
The channel looks to be broadcasting a number of movies from the catalogue owned by Movies4Men, along with a number of documentaries -
The Hindenburg Disaster
Blitz on Berlin
The Battle of Midway
Bombers of the Second World War
World Of Sport
Any Gun Can Play
Kentucky Rifle
Cimarron Strip
Conan The Adventurer
Codename Wild Geese
The new Men and Movies channel will be transmitted from the Eurobird 1 satellite.

This is the official press statement

London, 04 October 2010: The ultimate entertainment for men with action, documentaries, horror, sci-fi, war and westerns wings its way onto UK screens today, as Freesat announces the exclusive launch of Men & Movies on the free-to-air satellite TV service.
The newest channel from Dolphin Broadcast Services, the channel operator subsidiary of Dolphin Television, Men & Movies brings male viewers an exciting array of films, sport and documentary features across an eclectic range of genres. Its addition to the Freesat line-up, on Channel 143, offers a thrilling destination for men who want more choice in their TV entertainment without having to pay a monthly subscription.
The arrival of Men & Movies follows hot on the heels of time-shifted ‘+1’ channels Movies4Men and Movies4Men2 on Freesat, launched last week to give its male audience a wider option of film start times across the schedule*.
Freesat’s Head of Channels, Mark Briggs said, “Whether you’re into war history, visiting sci-fi fantasy worlds, or classics from the wrestling ring, Freesat now gives you exclusive access to a channel packed with content to indulge your die-hard TV passions. Men & Movies further strengthens our entertainment genre on offer as we continue to bring greater subscription-free choice to audiences right across the UK.”
David Goffin, Managing Director of Dolphin Television said: “We are delighted to launch this as a first to the Freesat audiences. We know our film channels are already very popular and we hope this eclectic mix of male-biased entertainment will further enhance their viewing.”

Men & Movies will automatically be added to viewers’ Freesat service via their TVs or digital boxes, meaning men can get their slice of the action straight away without having to manually re-tune.
