According to the LA Times, Sony is preparing to launch two new cable television channels on October 1st. The first channel, tentatively called Sony Pictures Movie HD, will feature full-length, HD-quality films from Sony’s vast library of movies. The channel would be included as an additional HD channel within a basic television package and would not be a premium offering like HBO, Starz, or Showtime. The second channel is the already operational FEARnet, a horror movie venture between Sony, Lionsgate, and Comcast. Currently offered as a pay-per-view channel and online, FEARnet will be expanding to a dedicated, ad-supported HD channel starting in October.
