Banijay Rights Launches FAST Channel
Banijay Rights has launched its first-ever dedicated general entertainment FAST channel under the Banijay brand, Horizons: Powered By Banijay.
Delivering over 200 hours of premium UK content to viewers on Samsung TV Plus UK and LG Channels, Horizons: Powered by Banijay will feature a range of series from Banijay’s extensive catalog of over 130,000 hours including Location, Location, Location, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Pointless, as well as the drama series Gunpowder and The Woman in White.
The new FAST (Free Ad-Supported Television) channel launches this week and features new built-in features ‘Supported by Banijay’ Branding – now being added to the full Banijay Rights suite of 13 live FAST channels and 50+ live streams worldwide.
Shaun Keeble, VP Digital, Banijay Rights said: “Horizons isn’t just a name, it’s a way of thinking – and doing business – for us here at Banijay Rights. Launching our own dedicated FAST channel under the Banijay brand in the UK is the perfect way to attract new viewers to some of our leading global IPs – and as that country’s FAST and AVOD operations continue to grow, it is one fantastic time to expand on our already growing suite of channels with Horizons and continue to lead the market in this space.”
Horizons – Powered by Banijay builds on Banijay Rights’ success in the global FAST broadcaster market in the UK, where earlier this year the company launched its McLeod’s Daughters and Deal or No Deal USA broadcaster brands on Samsung TV Plus UK, as well as Deal or No Deal, Fear Factor and The Biggest Loser at LG.
