Movies Now HD Channel from Times TV Network

The Times TV network has announced the launch of a 1080i HD English movie channel, Movies Now, for Indian audience.

Currently, India has about 7-8 English movie channel options ranging from Star Movies and HBO to Sony Pix and Zee Studios. But none of these are showcasing movies in the HD format. With the growth of LCD Tvs in India, fan base wants more HD content on their screens.

As of now, most HD subscribers feel a little cheated, especially those on Tata Sky HD. Even afetr 6 months of launch, Tata Sky has not been able to add the channels it initially promised like Star Movies HD. Even the channels it is showing in HD are a hogwash. The Star Plus HD is exactly similar to the normal HD channel. The Nat Geo HD channel has subtitles coming in Chinese which makes it pretty irritating to watch the channel.

Movies Now HD channel will be the fourth Tv channel from the Times TV Network. They already have Times Now news channel, ET Now and Zoom. Star Den manages the Times Now and Zoom channels while ET Now is handled by Times Television Network directly. Movies Now will be a part of the Zoom Entertainment Networks, which is under the Times Television Network.

Movies Now is said to already have a huge collection of Big movies from Hollywood studios. All its movies will be showcased in the 1080i format.

How soon the channel will be available is still uncertain, however if it goes live before Diwali, it might prompt some more customers to go for the HD LCD Tvs during Diwali Festival shopping.

Update Dec 19th Sunday

Times NOW Movies HD is launched today with a string of HD movies being shown on first day which include Ice Age, Baby’s Day Out, Big Momma’s House 2, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, iRobot, Night at the Museum and What Happens in Vegas. However, the channel is not yet available on several DTH networks. Tata Sky once again seems oblivious of its HD subscribers as the channel is not yet live on Tata Sky.

    2 page ad in Times of India, and yet no mention of which DTH operator transmits ‘Movie Now’! Pathetic condition. God save this country! It certainly is not available on SUN HD.

    We agree with you Simon, we saw the TOI ad and we thought the same. What is the point of advertising or launching a new channel when you can’t get major DTH providers to show them?

    when this channel will be launched on DTH platforms? I have seen its movie schedules, movies (titanic etc)have already been shown on other channels like star movies. i think they should add some classics of the actors like Al Pacino, Clint eastwood, Jack nicholsan, Robert De Niro, Steve Mcqueen,Paul newman from 70′s and 80′s otherwise this channel movies will also stand in the league of channels showing B grade movies of hollywood.

    This is such a non-sense, I have been trying to get this MOVIES NOW channel on my Airtel-HD so that I can enjoy the movies on my HD-LCD and with my SONY 5.1 HTS. But neither my airtel connection provider nor TIMES has any idea about how to deliver it to me. Now this situation is like showing the bone to the Dog but not giving it :D

    But still I am waiting eagerly to come on airtel HD. Happy waiting.

    We definitely agree with you…we see Movies Now HD ads on newspaper daily claiming they have over 40% viewership, but we wonder who actually is seeing the channel as major HD service providers like Tata Sky HD and Airtel HD are yet to beam the channel!

    The poor part is, airtel guys doesn’t know any information that when these HD channels will be added …..default message is “We will let you know once it has been done sir” worst protocol, no passion on updating their knowledge.
    once Commedy:

    10 Months before I called regional head of Dish TV @Chennai and asked when HD channels are likely to get added with them. But he asked me what is HD means, He took my contact and said will enquire and get back to me.I have a bigtime laugh with my friends even now…….

    I have Airtel HD and I am waiting for the Times Movie channel. Airtel do not have any plans to bring this channel here. I am planning to move to Didh TV HD, Now they are offering 30 HD channels. Airtel guys asked me Rs.165 for ICC world cup in HD. I am not going to pay for this, because that amount is not worth, I have already star sports, ESPN and star cricket. I do not know how long Airtel can cheat their customes with only one HD Channel, while others offering up to 30 Channels??

    We understand your feelings. HD services by these DTH providers have been nothing more than a hogwash. For a new set top box and a monthly fee, all Tata Sky and Airtel has given is 2-3 HD channels. Channels like Movies Now HD which were launched 2 months back have not yet been added. So, in a way these DTH operators are cheating their customer base by charging them for a new box and monthly subscription.
