Sony Movie Channel said it signed a multi-year distribution pact with MCTV (formerly known as Massillon Cable TV), a member of both the American Cable Association and the National Cable Television Cooperative, to carry the high-definition movie channel. MCTV launched the channel as part of the Basic Plus Package on channels 715 in high definition and 115 in standard definition. MCTV serves customers in Massillon, Wooster and surrounding communities in Ohio. The deal includes linear, video-on-demand and TV-everywhere (authenticated online viewing) for MCTV customers.
”As a movie fan, I am thrilled that Sony Movie Channel has joined our lineup,” MCTV president Bob Gessner said in a release. “The network features films that cover multiple genres; an option which is especially appealing to our movie-focused subscribers.”
This month, the network is highlighting spaghetti westerns like The Big Gundown with Lee Van Cleef as well as the broadcast premieres of Operation Rogue and Stranger Within.
