HITS Movies Lands on MNC Vision in Indonesia


Rewind Networks has secured expanded carriage for its HITS Movies channel, clinching a deal with Indonesia’s leading pay-TV platform, MNC Vision.

The new basic-tier movie channel, delivering feature films from the ’60s to the ’90s—including Batman Forever, Superman, Forrest Gump and Ghost—is already available in Singapore on StarHub and in Indonesia via OTT service HOOQ’s linear skinny bundle. HITS Movies launches on MNC Vision on April 1 in the Basic Family pack, as well as on MNC Now and MNC Play. The deal brings HITS Movies’ reach in Asia to more than 3 million homes within six months of its launch.

“HITS Movies has had a spectacular ratings performance in Singapore for the past six months since its debut and we can’t wait for this success to be amplified on Indonesia’s leading pay-TV platform, MNC Vision,” said Avi Himatsinghani, CEO of Rewind Networks. “The success of HITS Movies is a testament to the strong demand from pay-TV viewers for solidly-curated playlists at a value that is reasonable to them.”

“We are pleased to introduce HITS Movies as one of a series of new channels that will be launched in our new basic Family Pack,” said Iris Wee, chief content and commercial officer at MNC Vision. “We believe that HITS Movies will enhance our new packaging proposition to attract new customers and retain existing ones. MNC Vision and MNC Play customers will also be able to enjoy HITS and HITS MOVIES on MNC Now on mobile devices.”

Rewind’s HITS channel for classic TV is also available on MNC Vision.
