The magazine also carries premium TV information on The Movie Network, MPIX, A&E, Vu! and Viewers' Choice Pay-Per-View.

"Our readers keep the magazine right in front of them all month long, and constantly browse it for what to watch and when," says Boisvert. "But it's the details in our stories that really ice the cake for them. Canada offers so much to the stars, both local and homegrown, and readers want to know where to eat, drink and buy the right stuff, just like their favourite celebrities.

"MovieEntertainment tells all the secrets."
