Sky Movies becomes Sky Cinema

Sky Movies is the leading movie channel package in the UK, owned by pay TV operator Sky. Since the launch in 1989 it has expanded from a single channel to a suite of twelve channels and different on-demand services. Last Friday, it renamed Sky Cinema, a name that is already used by its sister services in Italy and Germany. This was announced on June 15 and also means more movie premieres and high-definition as standard for costumers.

The relaunch necessitated a new ident, created by the in-house agency Sky Creative, with production done by The Mill. It starts out with a film projector and proceeds with cinematic particles that form the new logo.
