  2. The official Press release

    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.
