Movies 4 Men on Freeview


I am able to get Movies For Men, etc and I have Winter Hill transmitter out my back window, but my friend in Cheltenham cannot and he has the same TV as myself Sony Bravia 507.

Is this due to him having a relay transmitter? He has retuned his TV and digibox but cannot get the 200 – 205 channels, I cannot get them on my Samsung I have in the bedroom and it is only a year old.

The Greater Manchester TV area is the first part of the UK to support local Freeview channels.

In May 2011, the following channels became available in the Manchester area

  • Channel M (Freeview Channel 200)
  • Movies4Men (Freeview Channel 201)
  • Movies4Men +1, (Freeview Channel 202)
  • Movies4Men 2, (Freeview Channel 203)
  • Movies4Men 2 +1 (Freeview Channel 204)
  • Men & Movies (Freeview Channel 205)

The Manchester channels are using a multiplex operated by Guardian Media Group, and at the time of writing, the channels are only available on the Freeview platform from via the Winter Hill transmitter.


How can I get Movies 4 Men?

If you get your TV signals from the Winter Hill transmitter (Greater Manchester), Movies 4 Men can be found on Freeview channel 201.

If you are not able to get a TV signal Manchester’s Winter Hill transmitter, then there are other ways to get the Movies 4 Men channel:

  • Freesat – A subscription-free satellite TV service
  • Sky – A subscription-based satellite TV service

To get Freesat or Sky, you will need a satellite dish.

There is a possibility that Movies 4 Men, and Men and Movies may be offered to other parts of the UK via Freeview in the future, but at the time of writing, we have no information about any firm plans for these channels to be offered elsewhere in the UK on Freeview.

    I live in the Manchester area and I used to love watching the old movies shown on Movies 4 men in the afternoon. However just recently these are unavailable and when I tune into the channel all I get is a screen saying that
    .This Channel Will Return Soon’.
    I believe that Sony have recently taken over the channel but it is still available in other parts of the country. Please could you tell me if this channel is scheduled to retirn to Freeview in the Manchester Area.
    Many Thanks

    How can I email Movies 4 Men?

  3. I know this web site presents quality based articles and additional data, is there any other
    website which presents these information in quality?

  4. I am sending a message to ask a question about you choice of movies. I like old movies and I like Movies for Men but what I don’t like is the amount of times you repeat the movies you show. Over the last 90 years the amount of Westerns and War films that have been made that you have never streamed on your Movies for Men Channel must be in the 100s so you can please show some new Movies instead of all the repeats you do show OK !!!!!!!!

    Why do you keep using the same antique films over and over again?
    Why are the programmes not listed in the TV guides?
