FAQ

Why do you repeat movies?

As a movie channel, we acquire licences to show movie titles for a year at a fee. To optimise value we ensure our titles are viewed by our viewers throughout the year. Our programming schedule is designed to give our various viewers an opportunity to watch movie premieres missed/not recorded. However we are very sensitive to the viewing experience of our new and loyal viewers, subsequently our repeat patterns are carefully planned to ensure they are not repeated frequently within the same time slot.

 
When do you show new movies?

You can catch a different movie everyday at 7pm on the channel with Yoruba titles showing Saturdays at 4pm and Mondays at 7pm.

 
Do you only show movies?

Our primary content is film; however we also offer in-depth and exclusive interviews with some of the most famous Nigerian film celebrities, as well as soap operas and entertainment news from across the Movie industry.

 
Are your movies suitable for family viewing?

All our movies have been edited to make them suitable for general viewing. However we do recommend parental guidance as some scenes might be unsuitable for younger viewers

Would you ever show a requested movie on Nollywood movies?

We offer a wide variety of titles from across various genres of the Nigerian film industry, including English, Yoruba and traditional titles. Although we’d like to show every movie from Nollywood, we only have licences for some titles.

Where do I send feedback and comments?

My Nollywood Movies channel is coming up with an error message?

The error message should point you in the right direction with a phone number to call. However it might just be the weather acting up and disrupting the signals. Your best bet is to switch off your viewing box and switch it on again. Hopefully this resolves your problem, if it doesn’t then you might need to call your cable provider.

 

My favourite movie was shown in the afternoon, why can’t you show it later in the evening?

Our Programming schedule is carefully designed to ensure our movie premieres are shown at times suitable for the various types of viewers that enjoy our channel. Our prime time movies are shown at 7pm and repeated later during the week.

 

I missed a movie premiere on Nollywood Movies; will you be showing it again?

Our Programming schedule is carefully designed to ensure our movie premieres are shown at times suitable for the various types of viewers that enjoy our channel. Our prime time movies are shown at 7pm and repeated later during the week. If you miss a movie during the day, don't panic, you’ll get a chance to watch it again.

 

Why do you show adverts in the middle of movies?

To make Nollywood Movies accessible to all, we decided to remove the barrier of subscription fees. This means we now rely solely on advertising revenue to purchase a wide variety of titles to showcase to our amazing viewers. However we try our best to keep it to the minimum to ensure a pleasant viewing experience for all our fans!

I’d like to act in Nollywood films, can you help me?

Although we are deeply passionate about nurturing and growing the Nigerian movie industry through showcasing and awarding its talented contributors, we unfortunately rarely produce movie content ourselves. Nevertheless if you are interested in acting, we do from time to time make casting calls for short films, feature movies and community film projects on the channel. So please look out for those on the Nollywood Movies channel.
