NBC Montana launches MOVIES! digital channel

Published On: Nov 04 2013 06:10:53 PM MST

NBC Montana launched MOVIES! on November 1, as a new movie channel replacing our digital channel ThisTV.

MOVIES! is designed to be a 'movie lover's' channel -- movies are not edited for length, they run whatever the original length was, and are not cut to fit a TV time schedule window. There are fewer commercial minutes per hour than other channels, and movies are presented in a 16x9 widescreen format when appropriate.

MOVIES! plans to add libraries from more studios.

The channel is the product of a company owned by two great broadcasters -- the Fox-owned TV station group and Weigel Broadcasting, the operator of MeTV, another channel that we broadcast.

MeTV is widely recognized as an outstanding channel, and we have great confidence that MOVIES! will also be highly regarded.

You can find MOVIES! over-the-air on channel 13-3 in the Missoula area, channel 9-3 in the Kalispell area and channel 6-3 in the Butte-Bozeman area. It is also available on digital cable channel 195 in those areas.
