RTV increases its owned and operated portfolio of channels

Rakuten TV strikes new deal with A+E Networks EMEA to launch multiple FAST Channels on its platform…

They have also strengthened their line-up in France by adding 5 new channels from The Satisfaction Group, with top quality & locally relevant content. Rakuten TV, a streaming platform, has announced the addition of multiple new channels in UK, Spain, Italy, and France, as part of its ongoing growth strategy.

The launch of the new channels reinforces Rakuten TV’s ongoing commitment to bringing locally relevant content to their audience of over 150 million households across 43 territories in Europe for free through AVOD content and FAST channels.

Rakuten TV’s Chief Content Officer, Marcos Milanez:

“We are very pleased to see top global and local providers investing further in FAST and we welcome these partnerships as it supports Rakuten TV’s continuous growth in providing locally relevant content to our audiences. Rakuten TV also remains committed to invest on its portfolio of owned & operated channels. We strongly believe in the success of our latest Single IP channels (Bio; Gypsy Kings), but also, launching the sci-fi channel (Fantascienza) will provide top-notch quality that this fan base of this genre deserves, to which we feel is currently being underserved in the market.”

In the UK, the RTV BIOGRAPHY CHANNEL launches focussing on the real-life stories of fascinating people from history, sports, movies and more.  Sharing stories of triumph and struggle, and everything in between, the channel offers a captivating insight into the worlds of some of the most famous people in recent history.  Documentary subjects include Robin Williams, Elvis Presley, The Krays, Muhammad Ali, Jennifer Aniston, Megan Markle, Tina Turner, Seve Ballesteros, Dua Lipa, and Tom Cruise.

In Spain, GIPSY KINGS is a new channel focussing on popular reality show that follows the day-to-day life of four well-known gypsy dynasties: the Salazars, the Fernández Navarro, the Jiménez and the Maya.  The show, a Mediaset Group Original, has been a huge success in Spain in recent years.

Italy see’s the launch of RTV FANTASCIENZA in Italy, a binge-watching paradise for sci-fi fans, with iconic and blockbuster movies from Hollywood and leading European studios.
