FOXLife will make its debut in Spain this October. Fully localised, the 24-hour channel will be available on all the country’s main pay-TV platforms, reaching 2.6 million subscribers via DTH, cable, IPTV and OTT.
FOXLife is operated by FOX International Channels (FIC), which has been present in Spain since 2001 through FOX and National Geographic Channel.
FOXLife will replace FOX Crime, with the latter’s series migrating mainly to FOX.
Following this change, FIC’s TV offering in Spain will consist of two entertainment brands (FOX and FOXLife), three factual channels (National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, and the travel channel Viajar), and children’s channel, Baby TV – all of which have corresponding HD versions.
Commenting on the launch, Adam Theiler, EVP of FIC Southern Europe and head of FIC Spain, said: “We are thrilled to launch FOXLife in Spain. The brand is core to our global entertainment portfolio and its entry into this market signals FIC’s continued investment and confidence in Spain.
“We are looking forward to introducing this great product and to entertaining local audiences with its addictive content.”
