It's hidden in the higher programming tiers, but it just might be worth checking out.

If you've got a hankering for some Sony movies, you're in luck. The new Sony Movie Channel is dedicated to showing Sony movies and only Sony movies.

"We're seeing a strong demand for high definition movie content," says Sony Pictures Television president Andy Kaplan. "Sony Movie Channel was designed specifically for the Hollywood movie fan, bringing our high-quality catalogue of feature films directly to viewers."

Movies are presented in HD and in uncut and uninterrupted states. Programming will be selected from over 3,500 Sony films which have won 184 Academy Awards as the company is quick to point out.

If you're a DISH subscriber, you'll get to try out the Sony Movie Channel free for the first month and can find it on channel 386. DirecTV subscribers will need to switch to 563 and U-verse subscribers can find it on 1791.
