After FilmNet turned 24 hours, they began very good and then after some time they changed their main channel to FilmNet+. Then at the end of their lifetime in Scandinavia before they became Canal+ they changed the main channel back to FilmNet but with a much worse design. FilmNet should continue on its good path becoming the action and drama movie channel.
Here is all of the FilmNet idents in one Video
Bad leadership decisions can turn something great like FilmNet upside down
FilmNet would for sure have survived if they had a different leadership back in the 1990s. It seems like profit and promos didn’t match at all after a while. Renaming the main movie channel to FilmNet+ was also a quite negative thing to do. When you start to mess with something that works great and turn it to something really bad. Then you are doomed or need to try to survive in hostile environments.
This premium tv movie channel should get the attention it had until the change to FilmNet+ for sure. ATN FilmNet which was the channel name at first began something unique and cool. They continued doing so when the channel became the first 24 hours movie channel in Europe.
It is really sad to have been a witness to the fall of a fantastic tv channel going under. The FilmNet name is still strong because of the times we all live in with Internet connections everywhere, and people do remember the best moments of the channel until they changed to FilmNet+.
FilmNet is remembered because of their Red FilmNet logo and their awesome idents and promos
There was one promo for FilmNet+ that looked stunning right after they changed their name, but after FilmNet+ stopped showing it, FilmNet+ turned to become a very boring channel. Idents and promos for every tv channel are always vital for a tv channel’s survival. Just look at those tv channels with the same logo when they started and still haven’t changed until today like CNN. People always turn to them when breaking news happens while other news channels simply try to compete by changing logotypes and styles all the time.
CNN has always been truthful to their promos and idents. They are going at the same speed as when CNN was created. The very same thing would have happened for FilmNet if they kept on having the red FilmNet logo and if they kept on showing action, drama and intense comedies they would still be loved. Also, FilmNet would have an amazing chance to hit big on the Internet movie streaming market. The name is for sure made for this.
