GREAT! romance will be available to watch Nationwide from 19th July!

The UK’s only dedicated romantic and rom-com channel, GREAT! romance, will be available nationwide from Wednesday 19th July 2023 – previously it was only accessible in selected regions.

GREAT! romance is home to an unrivalled selection of heart-warming romantic movies.  You’ll get to enjoy love-led films featuring the channel’s familiar faces including Brendan Penny, Marcus Rosner, Autumn Reeser and more, plus gems from A-listers like Chris Evans and Liam Hemsworth. 

GREAT! romance launched in January and is the fastest growing channel in the UK this year and from 19th July the whole nation will be able to share in the love story! 

It is no surprise that with GREAT! romance being the fastest growing channel in the UK this year, it is now set for its nationwide debut. Sister channel GREAT! tv – which specialises in classic series such as Murder, She Wrote and M*A*S*H – has now also launched nationally, having previously also only been available in selected Freeview regions. 

GREAT! romance’s exciting array of content includes:

Valentine In The Vineyard – Winemakers plan a wedding while also executing a high-stakes business expansion in this delicious rom-com starring Rachael Leigh-Cook and Brendan Penny.

Love On The Menu – The channel serves up a very sweet romance in which a popular chef and a food executive, played by Autumn Reeser, go into business together and it’s not long before they begin to fall for each other.

Paris, Wine & Romance – Ooh-la-la! Jen Lilley plays Isabella, the ambitious new owner of her family’s Oregon winery whose dream of becoming world-renowned takes a big step forward when she enters a prestigious wine competition in Paris. Upon arrival, Isabella meets her biggest competitor, Jacques, from one of the world’s foremost winemaking families. A budding romance soon starts to develop!

Love & Honor – Liam Hemsworth stars in this romantic drama set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and the moon landing in July 1969 where two charming and passionate young soldiers will go to any length for love! While fighting for his country in Vietnam, Dalton finds out that his girlfriend back home has dumped him. He has one week’s leave coming up so decides to escape the war and fly halfway round the world to get her back.

Playing It Cool – Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan star in this quirky romantic comedy. Evans plays a screenwriter who wants to write action movies, but his agent is insisting he writes a romance story first. The only problem is that he doesn’t believe in love and hates the idea of commitment. But when he meets a beautiful woman at a charity gala (Monaghan), he thinks that she may be the one to change his opinion and help him write about love.

Love At First Sight – Adrian Grenier and Amy Smart star as a couple separately searching for love. After being dumped by her fiancé for being unadventurous, a woman sets out to prove him wrong by tracking down the handsome stranger whose mobile phone she’s found. It’s a heartfelt journey that becomes the ultimate love story.
