Foxtel has announced that from February 1 2018 it is offering a dedicated selection of the best from World Movies, on demand, to Foxtel movies subscribers.
The move complements Foxtel’s plans to provide a dedicated, weekly World Movies screening on Foxtel Movies Masterpiece, starting January 3 2018.
The shift of World Movies to Foxtel On Demand follows this month’s widely hailed arrival of acclaimed streaming video on demand service Walter Presents, known for delivering some of the world’s best foreign-language dramas to audiences everywhere.
Brian Walsh, Foxtel’s executive director of television, said: “Foreign cinema continues to be popular with our movie subscribers, who demonstrate a discerning appetite for rich and diverse films from around the world and which brought about the addition of our latest on demand movies acquisition, Walter Presents. There is little doubt that the viewing habits of movie lovers continue to evolve. Therefore, we’ve kept a step ahead with the decision to replace the World Movies channel with a dedicated on demand library.”
