Movies 24 is a European satellite and cable television channel owned and operated by NBCUniversal. It was launched on 26 June 2006 and is available in Hungary, Poland, Ireland, Romania and the United Kingdom. Movies 24 airs made-for-TV movies covering a range of different genres, from crime and thriller to romance and action.[1][2]

From 2009, Movies 24 has rebranded as Christmas 24 between November and January.[3][4]

Television and radio broadcaster Roger Tilling has been the continuity announcer of Movies 24 since the channel's launch in 2006.[5]

Movies 24 +[edit]

On 16 October 2006, a sister channel Movies 24 + was launched. The channel was previously a 90-minute timeshift channel called More 24.[6] In September 2007, Movies 24 + introduced a separate daily schedule from Movies 24, showing the same movies but at very different times throughout the day.[7]
