History[edit]

It was launched on 1 May 1994. At that time, it screened both Hollywood and Chinese-language films and was focused to a pan-Asian audience split into two television channels: Star Movies International (now Fox Movies) and Star Mandarin Movies (now Star Chinese Movies).

On May 19, 2012, STAR Chinese Movies Hong Kong was officially rebranded. The channel logo was also changed from a star, to a crown.
