Dallas-Fort Worth is getting a new, over-the-air, 24-hour film channel in the spring called, appropriately enough, "Movies!" The region is one of 17 markets where the new project from Fox Television Studios and Weigel Broadcasting will be seen.
The channel, which will be available as a D2 sub-channel on the converter box, will show films in the 16-by-9 format which is compatible with flat-screen technology.
Fox Television Stations is the umbrella organization for the Fox stations owned-and-operated by the network. Weigel Broadcasting is a communications company based out of Chicago.
