GREAT! launches entertainment network on 25th May

New, free-to-air entertainment network GREAT! brings a wealth of content including modern and classic films, blockbuster movies and nostalgic TV shows to UK audiences.

A range of new channels operating under the GREAT! umbrella will launch in the UK on 25th May and will bring together movies, TV series and game shows. The GREAT network will feature an eye-catching look and feel and be available on Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media and Freesat at no extra cost to viewers.

Consisting of three movie channels and one dedicated to TV, GREAT! will replace Sony Movies, Sony Movies Action, Sony Movies Classic and the Sony Channel, which created the UK’s first free-to-air movie network in September 2019.

Now acquired by Narrative Entertainment, Sony’s portfolio of film and entertainment channels has been rebranded and will consist of the following:

GREAT! movies
The best choice for free-to-air, blockbusters, contemporary hits, cult classics and feature film favourites, including Blade Runner 2049 starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic Prometheus featuring Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman in war drama Fury.

GREAT movies classic

The home for the very best of timeless cinema and modern movie making will see quality films available for repeated enjoyment including the Oscar-winning musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale, Oliver!, the classic Hitchcock thriller Psycho, and Sidney Poitier and Katharine Hepburn in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.

GREAT movies action

The no-holds barred action movie channel will features everyone’s favourite heroes from classic John Wayne westerns to cult Jean-Claude Van Damme actioners - it's entertainment which doesn’t pull its punches.  

GREAT tv

A celebration of the love and excitement of great drama and entertainment with a familiar mix of scripted series, nostalgic drama and popular gameshows, including series such as Charlie’s Angels and Starsky & Hutch, which were the inspiration for blockbuster movies decades later, plus Murder, She Wrote, Hart to Hart, and classic Who Wants to Be A Millionaire

From 25th May, there’ll be something to suit your viewing mood.
