john davies: Sony (who own Movies4Men and the True channels) have decided to reduce the coverage of some of their channels on Freeview. No one else can say whether they will increase their coverage again in future.

frank westrip:

I can only guess from your previous post that you think this site has something to do with the broadcast of this and other channels. It does not, it's an independent help site for those with reception problems, it has no connections with any broadcasters or channel owners.

Sony have renamed Movies4Men to Sony Movies Action and they have made changes to many of their channels, see Help | Freeview
Sony Movies Action is on the SDN multiplex except in Wales, where it is not available.

Sony also made changes back in June when many of their channels moves to Local Multiplexes and so are only receivable in areas that have a Local multiplex on LCN (channel) 7 or 8 see Help | Freeview

So if you have any problems with Sony channels, complain to them.
