Cinemoi channel on Virgin
Virgin TV subscribers will get free access to 40 classic French films in December/January, many of them in high definition

Virgin Media TV subscribers will get a taste of French culture during December and January with the addition of Cinemoi, the French film channel, to the company's cable TV service.

It's free for the first two months, and after that will cost £5.99 per month if you sign up before January 31st 2011, or £6.99 a month after that.

Cinemoi is dedicated to French cinema produced for a UK audience, and has 40 films with English subtitles on offer, many of which have never been seen before outside France. Many are in high definition too.

Titles on offer in December/January include Belleville Rendez-Vous, Arsene Lupin, Inside Ring as well as And God Created Women.

Jonathan Ross and Michael Caine are said to be big fans of Cinemoi.

More after the break

Ross says: "I watch more movies on Cinemoi than any other film channel. I love the mix of contemporary commercial French cinema as well as the classics they show on a regular basis."
