Now MGM Channel to go

MGM Channel which was brought in by Dialog TV to replace Star Movies when it pulled out of this region will be discontinuing it's services during this month, probably by the end of the month. This leaves Dialog TV now looking for a replacement to the channel.

MGM which was renamed in most territories as AMC, retained the MGM branding in this region and are calling  it quits. The channel will not be undergoing any rebranding in this region & will cease transmissions. There has been no official statement from MGM regarding this.

Dialog TV which was in a limbo over the replacement of Star Movies, find themselves in deeper trouble. Either Dialog will have to come sort of agreement with Star Movies & reintroduce the channel or work with Fox International Channels to introduce Fox Movies Premium. One stumbling block over the retransmission of Fox Movies Premium initially was the broadcast of UFC for which regional rights were held by Sony Six. Now since UFC has been moved to Fox Sports, we believe that it probably would be easier to secure the channel however with HBO Asia securing second run rights for some of the movies premiered on Fox Movies Premium, there might still be a problem.

Also now Sony Six is acquiring rights for La Liga, FA Cup & Serie A football tournaments & this channel isn't available in this country. The channel will also be used to broadcast the SL vs India Cricket match in Hindi we believe but it also has some prime English content which will be missed. Dialog should secure this channel too.

Please keep us update on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

This is a community blog not moderated nor endorsed by dialog. It's the best place to keep up to speed with dialog TV developments, even dialog does not provide such info. Thanks for your time and effort admin. You're doing a great job.
