Singapore, 28 August 2018

Rewind Networks today announced the launch of HITS MOVIES HD (StarHub TV Channel 512), Asia’s newest basic movie channel on 1 October 2018. Celebrating the best movies ever made from the 1960s to the 1990s, HITS MOVIES HD features a carefully curated selection of the finest films in HD.

“We are excited to partner with StarHub for the launch of HITS MOVIES HD – making Singapore our debut market for the channel in Asia” said Mr Avi Himatsinghani, CEO, Rewind Networks. “HITS MOVIES HD fills a clear need gap in the evolving subscription video landscape for quality, evergreen movies on the basic tier – a perfect fit for StarHub viewers looking for a unique and compelling entertainment offering at no additional cost.”

At launch, HITS MOVIES HD’s select lineup of films will include movie hits from a wide range of genres – from romance (Grease, West Side Story) and action (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, The Terminator, The Italian Job) to comedies (The Pink Panther, Trading Places), thrillers (Fatal Attraction) and westerns (For A Few Dollars More).

Rewind Networks’ VP and Channel Head Sandie Lee handpicked the titles for the channel based on two main factors: the film’s emotional appeal to loyal, older audiences, as well as its ability to attract younger viewers.

“It is important for us that the titles we pick for the channel resonate strongly with viewers who, would love to watch them fondly again, or in the case of younger viewers, may have heard of these movies through remakes and adaptations but never had the chance to watch the original,” she said. “In addition to MGM Studios and Paramount Pictures, we will be acquiring movies from other leading studios in the coming months.”

HITS MOVIES will air in stunning High Definition for viewers to fall in love with, whether for the first time – or all over again.
