Celestial Tiger Entertainment announces five new carriage deals
Hong Kong – Celestial Tiger Entertainment (CTE), the operator of pan-Asian channels dedicated to Asian entertainment, has announced five new carriage agreements on the first day of the 2012 CASBAA Convention held in Hong Kong. The deals will extend CTE’s channel distribution to Cambodia for the first time, extend CELESTIAL CLASSIC MOVIES’ reach into the Philippines, and create a new on-demand service called KIX Thrill Select for a new over-the-top (OTT) interactive service in Singapore.
The five new deals include carriage on PPCTV and One TV (Cambodia), MeTV (Thailand), SKYCable (Philippines), and MediaCorp’s Toggle (Singapore). In addition, SingTel’s mio TV will be shifting KIX HD to their basic Family pack.
All four of CTE’s primary channel brands are included in the deals: CELESTIAL MOVIES (CM), a 24/7 Chinese movie service in Asia and beyond; CELESTIAL CLASSIC MOVIES (CCM), which features digitally remastered classic Chinese movies; KIX, which features a diverse mix of action entertainment in Asia; and Thrill, a horror, thriller and suspense movie channel for Asia.
“The momentum continues to build on our bouquet of channels. Since the beginning of the year, we have signed 17 new carriage deals with 13 platforms. These new carriage agreements truly reflect the wide appeal of our daring, distinctive and uniquely Asian channels,” said Todd Miller, President and Chief Operating Officer of Celestial Tiger Entertainment.
