Movies4Men is a satellite television film channel in the United Kingdom and Ireland, available as a free-to-air service on Freeview, Freesat and Sky. The channel is aimed at the Middle age to old aged male viewer, with a look at the classics in cinema history, focusing mainly on western and war film genres.

Availability and transmission history

Between May 2011 and January 2012, Movies4Men was also available on Freeview in Greater Manchester,[1] Movies4Men +1 had also been made available from November 2011 but closed at the same time. On 19 September 2012, both channels returned to Freeview in the area, and launched nationwide on Freeview on 1 April 2014.

Dolphin Broadcast Services Ltd acquired the daytime matinee movies service from sit-up Ltd, which was re-branded as the 24-hour Movies4Men on 1 February 2006. On 19 January 2012 Dolphin Broadcast Services Ltd was itself purchased by Sony Pictures Television and merged into Sony Pictures Television’s existing UK networks business.[2] Sony Pictures Television also took a majority stake in Dolphin’s advertising sales business.

Movies4Men was joined by its sister channel Movies4Men 2 on 9 October 2006, which transmitted other types of cinematic genres until it closed on 2 May 2012. As of September 2008, the channels transmit films in 16:9 widescreen where available.

On Monday 25 February 2008 Movies4Men +1 launched on Sky 326 as a timeshift channel, showing all Movies4Men films one hour later.
