Fox International’s chinese language movie channel Star Chinese Movies has launched a feed in Southeast Asia.

The SEA feed is the eighth outlet for Star Chinese Movies, which Fox says makes SCM the Chinese-language channel with the broadest reach in the region.

Star Chinese Movies’ other feeds include Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore and an international feed that covers Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand. 

The Southeast feed went live today.

It was launched in Thailand in partnership with GMMZ and MeTV, and in Indonesia via First Media, Big TV, Parabola Orange TV, Skynindo and will be available on Aora TV from 1 December.

The programme line-up includes the films Saving General Yang, Ah Boys to Men 1 & 2 and The Wedding Diary 2, which will be subtitled in Chinese and English as well as Bahasa Indonesia and Thai in the relevant markets.

“The launch of SCM’s new feed for Southeast Asia marks another milestone for FIC’s ambitious goals to develop and promote Chinese entertainment as premium crossover content, not just in Asia but worldwide,” said Cora Yim, VP of the Chinese Channels Group at Fox International Channels.

“With our global scale, steady investment in not just acquiring but also producing content, and established channel brand of SCM, FIC is in a great position to lead the charge in taking Chinese content global.”
