Freeview, Sky Q and Virgin customers unlock the FREE film channel … however you must wait to look at

GREAT! launches a new film channel for viewers on Freeview, Freesat, Sky Q and Virgin Media. The new channel will be completely free to watch, with commercial breaks allowing the broadcaster to broadcast an endless stream of films. However, you can wait before switching to the new channel.

That’s because the latest addition to the Sky Q, Freeview and Virgin Media set-top boxes is GREAT! Movies Christmas. It will appear nationwide in TV guides from Thursday, September 23, 2021. That seems pretty early to see festive classics. In fact, it seems a little premature to watch Christmas movies in a row before we’ve seen the back of Halloween or Bonfire Night, to tell the truth.

Sky Cinema launches its own festive movie channel each year, but it’s only available to those who pay for the Sky Cinema plan. This is available on the Sky Q, NOW (formerly NOW TV) and Virgin Media set-top boxes.

In contrast, GREAT! Films Christmas will be completely free to receive. According to the broadcaster Narrative Entertainment, it will “be bursting with festive films to make you feel good, from Christmas classics to new premieres and wonderfully pampering delicacies”.

Exclusive channel premieres include A Christmas Melody with Mariah Carey, Just In Time For Christmas with Christopher Lloyd, On Strike For Christmas, The Christmas Sitters, Beaus of Holly, the family comedy Call Me Claus with Whoopi Goldberg, A Husband for Christmas and Crazy About Christmas.

GREAT! Movies Christmas will be available through January 4, 2022. During the holidays there is GREAT! Films Christmas will replace GREAT! Movies Classic in your TV guide. In January, BIG! Movies Classic returns to its rightful place on your set-top box.

Since it replaces the existing channel, you will find it GREAT! Movies Christmas with the same channel code. These are channel 51 on Freeview, 319 on Sky Q and Sky + HD, 424 on Virgin Media and 303 on Freesat.

The great! Entertainment Network replaced Sony Movies, Sony Movies Action, Sony Movies Classic, and the Sony Channel when they launched on Tuesday, April 25th.

Daniel Levin, Chief Executive of Narrative Entertainment, told Variety at the time, “Sony did a wonderful job maintaining these channels and they have been a wonderful partner in this transition. The program will uninterruptedly be a brand like Pop into the Narrative-Familie, which is without question a premier target network for children across the UK, giving an incredible new look to the movies and entertainment channels. “
