REELZCHANNEL—TV About Movies® today announced True Grit is the latest REELZCHANNEL Risk-Free Movie. The Risk-Free Movie promotion is the network’s way of sharing its enthusiasm for movies to viewers who seldom or never watch Video On Demand (VOD) or Pay-Per-View (PPV) movies by offering them a reimbursement if they don’t like movie. The REELZCHANNEL True Grit promotion runs from Tuesday, June 7, 2011-Monday, July 4, 2011.
“At REELZCHANNEL we love movies and with so many available on Pay-Per-View and On Demand, some viewers might be afraid to purchase something they might not like, which makes the Risk-Free promotion so attractive as an entertainment option,” said Bob Bedford, SVP of Marketing. “With True Grit as our Risk-Free Movie, the entertainment value is sky high given the movie’s stellar cast, 10 Academy Award® nominations and glowing reviews from REELZCHANNEL movie reviewers Leonard Maltin and Richard Roeper.”
To participate, movie fans simply need to purchase True Grit on VOD or PPV through their cable or satellite provider between June 7, 2011 and July 4, 2011 and if they don’t like the movie, they visit http://www.reelz.com/riskfree to start their reimbursement process.

About True Grit
True Grit is a powerful story of vengeance and valor set in an unforgiving and unpredictable frontier where justice is simple and mercy is rare. Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld), is determined to avenge her father’s blood by capturing Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), the man who shot and killed him for two pieces of gold. Just 14, she enlists the help of Rooster Cogburn (Academy Award-winner Jeff Bridges), a one-eyed, trigger-happy U.S. Marshall with an affinity for drinking and hardened Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Academy Award-winner Matt Damon) to track the fleeing Chaney. Despite their differences, their ruthless determination leads them on a perilous adventure that can only have one outcome: retribution.
