Rewind Networks today announced the launch of HITS MOVIES on Cignal, Philippines’ premier DTH satellite provider. The channel is available on Channel 58. HITS MOVIES joins sister channel HITS, which has been on the platform since October 2016. HITS MOVIES will be available for free to all Cignal subscribers for the first three months of launch.
Across Asia, HITS MOVIES is available on major pay-TV platforms in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. The Cignal launch comes shortly after three major milestone launches for Rewind Networks in just the first two months of 2020 – the launch of HITS on Tata Sky in India and the launch of HITS MOVIES in CANAL+ (Myanmar) and Astro (Malaysia). The launches signal a growing demand for the channel among leading pay-TV operators in the region.
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Cignal and bring HITS MOVIES to their viewers in the Philippines,” said Mr Avi Himatsinghani, CEO of Rewind Networks. “We are confident Cignal subscribers will enjoy HITS MOVIES’ blockbuster line-up of top-rated Hollywood movies from the ‘60s to the ‘90s, just as they have enjoyed its sister channel HITS”.
Guido R. Zaballero from Cignal said, “The launch of HITS MOVIES on Cignal is a testament to our commitment in giving our subscribers the best viewing experience with awesome curated entertainment. We look forward to working with Rewind Networks to replicate the success of HITS on Cignal with HITS MOVIES. We will have a 3 month blowout to all Cignal postpaid, prepaid and SatLite after which, it will be made available to all postpaid plans as well as prepaid load 300 and up and SatLite 299”.
