BSkyB to launch James Bond channel

British pay TV broadcaster BSkyB is launching a movie channel dedicated to James Bond after striking a deal to acquire the rights to the films earlier this year.

Sky struck a deal with MGM in April 2012 to show the entire library of 22 James Bond films from Dr No to Quantum of Solace. It will now launch Sky Movies 007 in October to showcase the films in both standard and high definition.

Director of Sky Movies Ian Lewis, said: “The Bond movies are a very special franchise and we want to ensure that our customers will be able to experience it in a way they’ve never been able to before, and so we’re going to create a dedicated channel Sky Movies 007 HD devoted entirely to James Bond showing the entire catalogue of films and loads of extra material.”
