Toronto-based Movieola: The Short Film Channel yesterday launched its own solution to problems with cable and DTH program guides. Because Movieola broadcasts films ranging from a few to 40 minutes in length, its programming doesn't fall into the standard slots of digital program guides, making it difficult for viewers to access information on what was on and what was up next. By undergoing an onscreen facelift, the channel now provides viewers with the title and a synopsis of the film they are watching, as well as that of the next film to be aired. The new display also lets viewers know how much time is remaining in the current film. A Channel Zero Inc. network, Movieola gives viewers an opportunity to experience the excitement, energy and emotion of cutting-edge entertainment through the world of short films, and is the world's first cable channel dedicated entirely to the short film format.
