OpenView HD celebrates its third birthday in October with the launch of a new channel – eMovies Extra. eMovies Extra is the second movie channel in the e.tv family. The free-to-air OpenView HD platform recently surpassed half a million activated households, bringing viewership numbers to around two million people.
eMovies Extra will give viewers even more movies to choose from, a bouquet of action, comedy, romance, sci-fi, horror, thrillers, crime and drama. In addition to the arrival of the new channel, is the launch of TransAfrica Radio on the platform, bringing the total number or radio stations to nine.
e.tv’s managing director Marlon Davids said, “We know that our viewers enjoy watching free movies in HD, so the addition of eMovies Extra is the perfect gift to help add even more entertainment ahead of the festive season.”
The channel will officially launch on 14 October at 12h00 and offers 24hour family entertainment. “The mix of content, including educational, children’s and entertainment programming has huge appeal to our viewers,” said Platco digital managing director, Patrick Conroy. “Current OpenView HD viewers are already enjoying the choices that the platform offers.”
