REELZCHANNEL TO LAUNCH FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE TO GIVE MOVIE LOVERS FUN & AFFORDABLE AT-HOME WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT

Full-Length Feature To Air Every Friday 9pm ET/6pm PT, Starting March 13, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE [Albuquerque, NM -- March 10, 2009] --ReelzChannel� - TV About Movies(TM) announced today a new primetime programming block aimed at movie lovers seeking more at-home viewing options and affordable weekend entertainment. ReelzChannel Friday Night Movie will launch on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 9 p.m. ET with a screening of Miami Blues, and will air a select feature presentation every week at the same time. The weekly movie will follow Leonard Maltin's popular Secret's Out, the movie-recommendation show featuring the critic's favorite overlooked and under-rated movies, at 8 p.m. ET, and Movie Mob, where a rotating cast of amateur webcam critics weighs in on new releases, at 8:30 p.m. ET.

ReelzChannel research indicates that people are heading to the couch to take away some of the economic "ouch." Forty-five percent of Americans are watching more movies at home as a result of the current economic climate, according to the network's findings, and the new ReelzChannel Friday Night Movie feature-length presentation will give viewers a rewarding weekend movie experience right in the comfort of their own homes.
