Movie Plus has been using the license of Indian Fashion TV for some time. Given its name initially, it was expected that the channel would be a lifestyle channel focused on fashion. However ever since its feed started on c-band the broadcaster has been airing old Hindi movies.

The channel is running on Insat 4-A. It had landed a spot on DD Freedish during the 38th E-Auction which was held in February. The broadcaster also holds two other licenses Housefull Movies and Multiplex. Both of them are movie channels as well.
