Cape Town – MultiChoice is adding a new movie channel, True Movies 1, to DStv in South Africa from Wednesday, 19 June to its DStv Premium bouquet on channel 138.

True Movies 1, a movie channel which has been available on MultiChoice's DStv platform and other platforms elsewhere in Africa is now being added to DStv in South Africa from Wednesday as a standard definition (SD) channel.

The film channel from Moving Movies Ltd which was launched in April 2005 in the United Kingdom will show "moving and emotional true movies" featuring Hollywood names such as Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie and Helena Bonham Carter in lead roles.

True Movies 1 is a freely available TV channel in the United Kingdom and shows dramatic films, many of which are made-for-TV movies.

A sister channel, True Movies 2 was launched in 2006 which focuses on movies based on real-life dramas.

"We wanted to give our DStv Premium customers a movie channel like no other – True Movies 1 is a perfect compliment to the almost 15 movie channels available to our DStv Premium customers on DStv," says Collins Khumalo, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa, announcing the DStv channel addition.

MultiChoice says True Movies 1 will feature weekly movie premieres, revealing royal documentaries, Hollywood films and author-based dramas.

MultiChoice also announced that the new Fox Crime channel will make its debut on 9 July on DStv channel 126.
