24th June 2008 By Graham P. Smith
UK based television viewers had for some time been able to enjoy Chris Carter's Millennium television series on ITV4 albeit at 4am in the morning but the series seems to have been dropped from current schedules. However all is not lost, for Chello Zone which broadcasts the popular Zone Horror and Zone Thriller channels seemingly comes to the rescue. Earlier this year during March, Chello Zone issued the following press release:
Multi-channel operator Chello Zone has acquired the cable and DTH rights to a wide selection of feature films and television series from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution; it was announced today by Steve Cole, Senior Vice President, Channels at Chello Zone.
The deal will see films such as Kiss of Death and crime thriller The Punisher, as well as TV shows, including Millennium, created by Chris Carter and starring Terry O"Quinn (Lost), the latest series of prime-time Emmy nominated reality hit Cops and Remington Steele starring Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day), heading to Chello Zone's channels Zone Horror, Zone Reality and Zone Thriller.
Chello Zone's highly successful channels – Zone Thriller, the high-tension home of suspense films and series; Zone Reality dedicated to explosive, unpredictable and extraordinary real life programming and Zone Horror devoted to the dark side of cinema – will air the films and series across all international feeds.
Steve Cole, SVP Channels comments on announcement, "We"re delighted to further extend our relationship with Fox. The exciting range of high quality titles the studio offers enables us to acquire shows that work in numerous countries on our many differently themed channels."
Steve Cornish, SVP and MD at Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution said, "We are very happy to be broadening our relationship with Chello Zone to bring such a wide variety of TV series and film to their audience through these speciality channels."

Chello Zone recently announced on the 20th June that their channels will be subject to an EPG re-shuffle with ZoneThriller undergoing a revamp whilst ZoneHorror receives a +1 channel.
