On April 1st 2008 Astral Media rebranded their classic quality drama and light-hearted entertainment specialty channel, originally known as MoviePix 2, then Mpix Too and later Mescape, as MorePix. On August 20th, 2012 Astral Television Networks announced that MorePix, offered in eastern Canada, would re-brand on September 18th to become The Movie Network Encore 2, while its MPix Channel would become The Movie Network Encore (TMN Encore 2 and TMN Encore ). The rebrands would serve to align the channels more closely with The Movie Network, which was the primary brand and channel in the suite of pay services offered by Astral. Bell Media acquired Astral in 2013.
