Asianet Movies is a 24-hour Malayalam pay television channel from the Asianet Digital Network Private Limited launched on 15 July 2012. It is the first Malayalam satellite TV channel for movies. The channel started airing Tamil and Hindi movies on weekends as the parent Star Group owns the rights of films in other languages as well. A channel dedicated to movies in Malayalam launched very late when comparing to other southern languages even though most of the Keralites like to watch their favorite movies on television. Soon after its launch Sun TV also launched its movie channel by changing its music channel Kiran Tv to show only movies.
Thiruvananthapuram-based Asianet Communications Limited (ACL) is owned by STAR India. The footprint of the free-to-air channel which started test run on 1 July 2012 includes India, the Gulf and other countries in the region. In Kerala, the channel is available through all major cable TV operators including Asianet Digital TV and KeralaVision as well as on major DTH platforms.
