Another movie channel

Hot on the heels of Film24 – okay before Film24, in fact – comes another movie channel: Movies 24. Just in case you hadn’t realised it was from the House of Hallmark, it’s showing only made-for-TV movies.

Meanwhile, Channel 4 has unveiled details of the new-look FilmFour which will re-launch as a free channel at 9pm on Sunday 23 July, starting with the free-to-air premiere of Lost in Translation.

It’s all go in TV movies land.
