For everyone who’s ready to put this year behind them and look forward to Christmas, you need to know about this TV Channel. 

Sony Movies Christmas is a new pop-up channel that will be playing Christmas films all day for the next three months right up until the big day.

The channel is set to launch this month and will be showing films 24 hours of the day so you can get in the festive spirit whenever you want. 

Viewers will be treated to the likes of A Beauty and the Beast Christmas, Marrying Father Christmas, and The Christmas Cabin.

Other new films on the channel include A Christmas Eve Miracle, Christmas Cruise, Lucky Christmas, The Christmas Contract, and Magic Stocking.

The channels states they will be airing Christmas classics as well as ‘indulgent treats to get you in the holiday mood from September to January’.

Adding: “Santa and his elves aren’t the only people working its stockings off to ensure there’s enough Christmas content to keep you in a seasonal mood right until the big day and beyond.”

“Because really, when isn’t a good time to give yourself a little festive cheer?”

Not only will there be exclusive new Christmas films as well as old favourites, there is also set to be special weekend themes including ‘Christmas comedies’, ‘Naughty vs nice’, ‘Wicked Christmas’ and even a ‘Singing for Christmas’ for the ultimate binge-watching weekend. 

Personally we can’t wait!! 

Sony Movies Christmas will be available from 24th September all day, every day. You can find the channel on Freeview 50, Sky 319, Virgin 424 or Freesat 303.

If you really want to get into the Christmas spirit, a radio station has launched that is playing 100% Christmas bangers all day every day. Find out more here

Some people are already in the spirit but it’s okay because studies show you’re probably happier…

The BBC’s coverage of Prince Philip’s death has received a ‘record number’ of complaints, according to reports.

It’s been reported that the broadcaster has been hit with more than 100,000 complaints in regards to its coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.

This would be a record in British television history, with the BBC creating a dedicated form online for viewers to voice their dissatisfaction.

The broadcaster cleared its schedules to cover Prince Philip’s death on Friday, and according to The Sun it has now received more than 100,000 complaints.

This is a record breaking number, beating the previous high of 63,000, which was again from the BBC when they screened Jerry Springer: The Musical back in 2005.

A BBC spokesperson said: “We are proud of our coverage and the role we play during moments of national significance.”

The broadcaster wiped its schedules on both BBC One and BBC Two to run mirrored programmes about the Duke following his death, while BBC Four displayed a message urging people to switch over for a ‘major news report’.

Line of Duty fans will love ITV’s new psychological thriller Too Close

Did anyone catch it last night?

Published

ITV

If you’re not sure what to do with yourself while waiting for the next episode of Line of Duty, then ITV has got you covered.

The broadcaster’s new three-part drama series Too Close began last night, with episode two airing tonight.

Starring Emily Watson and Denise Gough, ITV’s gripping psychological thriller was written by author and actress Clara Salaman and directed by Sue Tully (Line of Duty).

The series was inspired by the novel of the same name, which was published under Clara’s pseudonym Natalie Daniels.

The mini-series premiered last night, Monday April 12th, and it focuses on the dangerous relationship between a forensic psychiatrist, Dr Emma Robertson (Emily Watson), and her patient.

Dr Robertson is assigned to work with Connie Mortenson (Denise Gough), a woman accused of an awful crime connected to the death of two young children – however, she claims she can’t remember a thing.

While the two women find themselves becoming dangerously close, it appears Dr Robertson might be ‘destroyed’ in the process of uncovering the truth.

Besides Watson and Gough, the series also stars Thalissa Teixeira, James Sives, Risteard Cooper, Chizzy Akudolu, Eileen Davies and Nina Wadia.

Too Close began last night on ITV, with the next episode airing tonight at 9pm and the following episode at the same time on Wednesday.

You can catch up on episode one here.

Tipping Point is on the hunt for Mancunians to star in the new series.

The ITV game show is looking for contestants for series 12, so if you know anyone who’d be perfect for it then let them know.

Hosted by Ben Shephard, Tipping Point gives people the chance to win thousands of pounds.

ITV says: “We are searching for fun, confident people who enjoy quizzing and would like the opportunity to win thousands of pounds using a combination of ​skill, judgement and chance.”

ITV

The hit show airs between 4pm and 5pm every weekday, and sees contestants answer questions on general knowledge, films, politics and other subjects before taking on the ‘tipping point’ machine.

Just like the coin pusher machines seen in the arcades of Blackpool and other seaside towns across the North West, contestants drop counters to win money.

People earn money from the silver counters which are worth £50, while ‘mystery counters’ and the £10,000 jackpot counter can also boost their cash pile.

ITV

Applicants must be 18 or over, and the deadline for applying is Friday May 7th – the last date for postal applications is Monday May 3rd.

To apply, either use ITV’s online application form here or email apply@rdftelevision.com for postal entries.
