FilmNet was the name used for several premium television channels in Europe during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. It was launched on 5 December 1984, broadcasting with a focus on Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Belgium. Filmnet channels were later launched in Poland and Greece.

The deal didn't include the Greek channels, who continued using the FilmNet name until 2008. Although the brand no longer exists, most of its subsidiaries in the different countries live on in some way.
