Hollywood Suite HD Movie Channels launch November 20th
Toronto based Hollywood Suite tweeted this week that it will launch its four new high definition (HD) movie channels in Canada beginning November 20th at noon ET on Eastlink, MTS, Sasktel and Telus, six days later than previously announced.
The company has so far been unable to secure carriage on Canada’s four major cable companies (Rogers, Shaw, Cogeco or Videotron) or the nation’s two direct to home satellite services (Bell Satellite and Shaw Direct) which will severely limit the number of Canadians with access to the new channels.
The new digital specialty channels will include: Warner Films and MGM Channel which will air movies from the respective studios libraries; Hollywood Storm which will air action and adventure films; and Hollywood Festival which will air independent and major studio romance and relationship films.
Hollywood Suite says the stations will feature 450 commercial free HD Movies a month uncut, unedited and commercial free for $6 per month. In addition, selected movies will also be available on demand, on-line and on mobile.
