Sky Movies Gold
Sky Movies Gold was launched on October 1, 1992. It was BSkyB's third movie channel.
Sky Movies Gold, along with Sky's other channels, launched a new look in 1993 with GRFX/Novocom.
Yet another look from GRFX/Novocom was launched in 1995 from all of Sky's channels, including Sky Movies Gold.
In November 1997, the "egg" look was debuted, but its' name, Sky Movies Gold, remained unchanged unlike other Sky movie channels which they were rebranding to Sky Movies Screen (number).
Sky Cinema (first era)
On September 10, 1998, Sky's movie channels were rebranded and Sky Movies Gold become Sky Cinema. A second channel, called Sky Cinema 2 was launched in October. This rebrand thus led to the "Sky Movies" brand being dropped and being split into several channels. The Sky Cinema name was used again in 2016, replacing all of the Sky Movies channels.
Sky Movies Cinema
Sky Cinema become Sky Movies Cinema on July 1, 2002, and on that same date, revived the "Sky Movies" brand after having the brand dropped in 1998.
Sky Cinema (second era)
In October 2003, the movie channels were rebranded again, and Sky Movies Cinema reverted back to its previous name (since 1998), unlike other Sky movie channels, which were merged into Sky Movies.
Sky Movies Classics
The Sky Movies channels were overhauled in 2007 and Sky Cinema become part of the other Sky Movies channels. Sky Movies Classics could be seen as Sky Cinema's successor.
