Rewind Networks today announced the launch of HITS MOVIES on Indonesia’s leading pay TV platforms - MNC Vision, its direct-to-home satellite service, MNC Play, a fibre-to-the-home broadband/IPTV service as well as its fledgling OTT service MNC Now.
On both MNC Vision and MNC Play, HITS MOVIES will be available on the respective platforms’ newly launched basic Family Pack on Channel 11 starting 1 April 2019. On MNC Now OTT service, the channel will be added to its existing premium subscription package. Both MNC Play and MNC Now will broadcast the HD version.
MNC Vision and MNC Play, which also carry Rewind Networks’ maiden venture, HITS (Channel 160), will be the third platform to carry HITS MOVIES, which launched on 1 October 2018 in Singapore (StarHub) and Indonesia (HOOQ). The deal brings HITS MOVIES’ reach in Asia to more than 3 million homes within six months of its launch.
“HITS MOVIES has had a spectacular ratings performance in Singapore for the past six months since its debut and we can’t wait for this success to be amplified through the carraige on Indonesia’s leading media group” said Avi Himatsinghani, CEO, Rewind Networks. “The success of HITS MOVIES is a testament to the strong demand from pay-TV viewers for solidly-curated playlists at a value that is reasonable to them.”
“We are pleased to introduce HITS MOVIES as one of a series of new channels that will be launched in our new basic Family Pack. We believe that HITS MOVIES will enhance our new packaging proposition to attract new customers and retain existing ones. MNC Vision and MNC Play customers will also be able to enjoy HITS MOVIES on MNC Now on mobile devices.” says Iris Wee, Chief Content & Commercial Officer, MNC Vision Networks.
