Cinema buffs, action afficionados and casual viewers alike are spoilt for choice with the launch of the new creatively curated movie channel – Movie Room (DStv channel 113).
The channel is the brainchild of Ngwato Nkosi Group, known as the founders of the disruptive, audience-centric and highly successful Newzroom Afrika news and information service. The company, which is a partnership between television entrepreneurs Thabile Ngwato and Thokozani Nkosi, is building on the strong platform created by Newzroom Afrika to expand its entertainment business with the launch of Movie Room.
“This channel will offer entertaining local and international movies 24/7, from big blockbuster hits to unforgettable cinema classics,” said Nkosi. “We’ll be carefully curating the line-up to cater for every mood – whether it’s edge-of-your-seat action you’re after, or the comfort of an old favourite. Newzroom Afrika has been successful beyond all expectations, and we will use the experience of setting up the channel from scratch to make smart decisions in our approach with Movie Room.”
Georginah Machiridza, Executive Head Content Strategy & 3rd Party Channels at MultiChoice said, Movie Room would give viewers even more options in their selection of entertainment for every viewing occasion. “We’re excited to bring subscribers the widest possible choice of fine movies to satisfy all tastes and seasons,” said Machiridza.
