In collaboration with Cignal TV, tvN has introduced the linear TV channels tvN Movies Pinoy and tvN Premium in the Philippines. tvN Movies Pinoy, a Tagalog-dubbed channel, brings the vibrant world of Korean films to Filipino audiences in their own language. This complements tvN Premium, an HD channel featuring the latest Korean dramas and shows.
For Cignal subscribers, tvN Movies Pinoy is now accessible on channel 39, while tvN Premium replaces tvN Asia, which is now located on channel 237. tvN Movies Pinoy is also available on Video-on-Demand (VOD) through Cignal TV’s streaming platform, Cignal Play.
Packed with a diverse range of movie genres, tvN Movies Pinoy offers Filipino audiences films featuring their favorite Korean stars, including Hyun-bin, Son Ye-jin, D.O., Don Lee, Lee Byung-hun, and many more. From thrilling romantic dramas to action-packed hits and heartwarming comedies, tvN Movies Pinoy caters to Filipino viewers’ diverse tastes and preferences.
Viewers can anticipate watching the latest Korean films of 2023, such as the tear-jerking story for pet lovers “My Puppy,” starring Cha Tae-hyun and Yoo Yeon-seok; the inspirational sports movie “Countdown,” starring veteran actor Jin Sun-Kyu; the romantic comedy “My Worst Neighbour,” starring Lee Ji-hoon and Han Seung-yeon about a neighbor with a singer dream; and the adrenaline-pumping detective thriller “The Glorious My Revenge,” starring Heo Jun-seok and Nam Bo-ra.
Just four months after its theatrical release in Korea and the Philippines, viewers can also catch “The Moon” in December, an action thriller featuring superstar D.O. (EXO), where he plays an astronaut attempting to land on the moon. Pinoy fans can also enjoy the comedy “Switch,” a story about an identity switch between a top star and a commoner, starring A-list Korean actors Kwon Sang-woo and Lee Min-jung.
The partnership also brings Cignal TV subscribers tvN Premium, featuring the latest Korean dramas like “Not Others,” based on a webtoon of the same title starring Jeon Hye-jin, Sooyoung (from SNSD), Ahn Jae-wook, and Park Sung-hoon. “Not Others” explores the love-hate relationship between mother and daughter and will be airing from November 8 onwards.
Mickey Ong, the Senior Vice President of CJ ENM Hong Kong, expressed gratitude for the partnership with Cignal TV, emphasizing the appeal to a wider audience by dubbing the films in the local language. Jane J. Basas, President and CEO of Cignal TV, added, “We are pleased to add tvN Premium and tvN Movies Pinoy to our channel lineup.
