Thrill is a pay television horror channel in Asia owned by Celestial Tiger Entertainment and billed as Asia's first and only movie channel dedicated to 24/7 to the horror suspense genre. It primarily broadcasts Hollywood and Asian horror films (primarily Japanese, Taiwanese, South Korean, Hong Kong, Filipino and Indonesian) but also airs other programs including thrillers and Western supernatural dramas.

Programming[edit]

The network features many iconic horror movie franchises including The Ring, Ju-on, The Amityville Horror, Friday the 13th, and The Blair Witch Project. Each month a thematic composed of first airings from contemporary horror movies or classic horror features from the 1990s is aired typically Fridays at 11PM (HK/SG/PHIL), 10PM (JKT/THAI).

Korean TV shows are aired in partnership with South Korea's OCN channel [1][2] to show popular serialised horror suspense dramas including Vampire Prosecutor, The Virus, Cheo Yong The Paranormal Detective.[3] Other shows include Western dramas including Psychoville, Coma, Bedlam, and Holliston; and "unscripted" paranormal reality shows including Ghost Hunters and Most Haunted.

Unlike other movie channels, this movie channel has commercial breaks.
