MGM Networks, the TV channel arm of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), has entered into an agreement with NOVA, the first digital-satellite platform in Greece, to launch a round-the-clock branded channel in the country.

The channel - dubbed The MGM Movie Channel - will be customised for the market to include Greek subtitles and follows similar launches earlier this year in Portugal, Russia and Malta. The company now has network interests in over 40 countries on which to exploit its 4,000-title library which includes Oscar-winners such as Midnight Cowboy, Rocky, Annie Hall and The Silence Of The Lambs.

NOVA is run by Multichoice Hellas.
