Adventure Earth is initially available on Samsung TV Plus in the UK. Negotiations with contract partners in other territories are underway, according to the partners.
“Captivating stories about sustainability and biodiversity in nature and wildlife are more popular than ever before. Viewers have never been more aware of how many wonders and surprises our vulnerable planet has to offer. Autentic has always been first and foremost about top-notch and relevant content, so partnering with OneGate Media to launch Adventure Earth is only a logical step for us,” said Patrick Hörl, Managing Director, Autentic.
Tania Reichert-Facilides, Managing Director, OneGate Media, added: “We welcome Adventure Earth to our channel family and are delighted to be working with Patrick and his team at Autentic, who have years of experience in the channel business and in marketing pay-TV channels. We bring our strong VOD expertise to the collaboration. We successfully operate more than 30 national and international channels from OneGate Media, and this FAST channel is the successful start of our new cooperation.”
OneGate Media will manage the tech platform while Autentic will handle the distribution and programming of Adventure Earth.
Munich-based Autentic specialises in high-quality documentaries and factual series for the international market. OneGate Media is a leading German distribution and production company for film and television and belongs to the Studio Hamburg Group, a production company part of the ARD network.
