gizmoFrom the 1st of December Sky Movies will launch ‘Sky Movies Christmas Channel’ with all the great movie content also available in glorious high definition on the Sky Movies Christmas Channel HD.

Sky Movies are offering the ultimate Christmas television gift as customers in the UK will be invited to vote on which movies they’d like to see on Christmas and Boxing Day to help create the best ever Christmas Day schedule. Sky Movies will offer a selection of lucky customers, who have voted, the chance to dedicate a special Christmas Day message before each film is broadcast.

The voting runs until 26th November.

The top twenty films selected in the vote will be played out on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. All those who have voted for the top twenty films will be put into a prize draw and twenty winners will be selected at random to win a prize package of 32” Samsung HD Ready TV, Sky+HD free for a year and to see their dedication on screen before the film plays out.

Other features of the new Sky Movies Christmas Channel are giving movie fans the chance to watch specially selected Sky Movies Christmas Box Sets every day in December to help cope with the stresses and strains of the yuletide period.

So, whether people are looking for a movie to help them unwind after a day of Christmas shopping or something to bring all the family together, they’re sure to find something on Sky Movies Christmas Channel.

Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies and Sky Box Office said, “Sky Movies is delighted to be dedicating a channel to Christmas this year and showcasing our biggest selection of movies ever in one season. The Sky Movies Christmas Channel isn’t about showing wall-to-wall Christmas movies just because it’s Christmas but offering great movies that everyone can enjoy at one of the few times of year when people actually get time to sit down as a family.”
