MikeB: "I didn't know about Movie Mix's tieup with Sony, but it makes a lot of sense. It also means some decent movies!"

Sony own and operate two Sony branded channels in the UK - Sony Entertainment Television (SET) and Sony Movie Channel (SMC) - both broadcast on Sky.

Sony own / operate 2 non Sony branded channels - Movies4Men (M4M) - broadcast on Sky and Freeview. More > Movies (More Than Movies) which broadcasts on Sky.

Movie Mix is not owned / operated by Sony, but Sony use Movie Mix to broadcast on Freeview. If you compare the schedule for Movie Mix and More > Movies they are identical right up until the primetime slot at around 9pm.

If Sony wanted to put SET or SMC on Freeview they would be buried down the bottom of the EPG behind CBS Action and the Tru Tv channels.

M4M has a specific content of Westerns, War Films etc. some of which are also shown on Movie Mix i.e. Django.

Earlier on in this thread Briantist posted (in good faith I might add) that Movie Mix is owned by Square 1 Management. Square 1 are a telephone services company that specialise in providing premium rate telephone lines and are the licence holder for a number of the Babestation type channels. I am not sure if the information that they own Movie Mix is still correct.

OFCOM transferred the DTPS (Digital Television Programme Service) licence for the Movie Mix channel from Square 1 to a new company called Media Mix (UK) Limited in November 2013.


The registered office of Media Mix (UK) Limited is given as 25, Golden Square, London, W1F 9LU.

Interestingly, 25, Golden Square is the address of Sony Pictures Europe House.

Current Directors of Media Mix (UK) Limited are listed as Miss Karen Elizabeth Marsh, a TV Executive. MR. Alan George Castle, an accountant and finally an American MR. Lyle Bainbridge Stewart Jr. Vice-President Programming and Research. (This is public domain information by the way).

Kate Marsh is Sony Pictures Television's senior Vice-President, networks, Western Europe. I presume that is the same person.

All three directors are also listed as directors of CSC Media Group Ltd. a subsidiary of Sony, which used to be called Chart Show Channels, and operates a lot of TV channels such as True Entertainment and music channels such as Scuzz.

How can we campaign for subtitles! I am hard of hearing and have a baby so need to keep the volume down when he's sleeping and subtitles are invaluable! Movies4men and movie mix need subtitles!

Jo Xenos: Sadly, only a small number of TV Channels are required to add subtitles to the programmes that they broadcast by the rules governing broadcasting. Smaller and/or newer channels like Move Mix are not required to add subtitles. It would cost the channel a significant amount of money to add subtitles of their own to the programmes that they broadcast. So there is no commercial incentive for the channel to add subtitles.

It would require a change in the law to force a TV channel like True Entertainment, Quest, Movie Mix etc. etc. to add subtitles. You could complain to your local MP about the lack of subtitles on many TV channels. At the end of the day it is MP's who create the rules governing TV broadcasting.

The BBC2 TV programme "See Hear" campaigns on issues of importance to deaf and hearing impaired people - perhaps you could ask them to raise the issue direct with the broadcaster and OFCOM on your behalf.

roula france: If Movie Mix has a streaming facility via their website, you can watch it on anything you like. I suspect that they dont.

I have been wondering where MovieMix gets its films from is it the 99p Shop or Poundland. Many of the films on MovieMix are unwatchable due to the dire acting or the awful dialogue. "Survivor" shown recently is a good example of a really poor film that should never had been made let alone shown on TV.
