U.K. satellite TV broadcaster BSkyB has announced plans for a dedicated James Bond “pop-up” channel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The channel, Sky Movies 007, will air all 22 Bond films sans advertisements for one month.
The channel will launch on Oct. 5 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the release of the first Bond film, Dr. No. The 23rd addition to the franchise, Skyfall, premieres in the U.K. Oct. 26 and in the U.S. Nov. 9.
BSkyB's Sky Movies secured the TV rights to the James Bond film catalog, which were previously held by ITV in the U.K., from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Eon Productions earlier this year.
