GetTV: Sony OTA Movie Channel

from TVNewsCheck.com

Sony Pictures Television is jumping into the subchannel business with the digital network GetTV, which will launch this fall on Univision stations in 24 markets, including in 17 of the top 20 DMAs. It will be available in 44% of U.S. TV homes. Sony is actively selling GetTV to other station groups.

The diginet will air old movies from Sony’s library of some 3,500 films, including Lawrence of Arabiaand The Bridge on the River Kwai.

“What Sony’s announcement really means — forget about classic movies — is that networks like Me-TV, This TV, Antenna TV and GetTV are destined to have original content,” Kokernak says. “They’re all going to go original eventually. It’s just a matter of when.”

  1. What happened to the Sony Movie channel 66-3 KFSF, Vallajo? I only get “BOUNCE TV” on 66-3. I was so looking forward to Sony movies.

    • I wish I had an answer for you. We have been waiting for Sony Movie Channel on WUTF in Boston for nearly a year. They had a logo on the lower corner of the screen indicating ‘getTV coming in October’ until November then it switched to ‘getTV coming soon’ and now it says getTV. Maybe I am watching it? SMC’s web site is http://www.sonymoviechannel.com. It includes Facebook, Twitter, and Contact links. You might try contacting SMC directly. Your KFSF seems to be a mirror of our WUTF right down to the virtual channel 66 and the lineup of subchannels (UniMás, Bounce TV, and GetTV). Has your logo changed to getTV? Maybe our patience is about to be rewarded?
