Nat Geo Wild gets launch date
National Geographic is to launch new channel Nat Geo Wild on March 29.
The channel, launching alongside Nat Geo Wild HD, will use the latest technology to "immerse" viewers in the lives of wild animals, according to Nat Geo.
The launch slate includes Rebel Monkeys, a series about a gang of feisty monkeys living in the Galta Temple in Jaipur, India; and Expedition Wild With Casey Anderson, a series documenting the naturalist's relationship with a 900lb grizzly bear.
Nat Geo Wild, a joint venture from National Geographic Ventures (NGV) and Fox Cable Networks, was unveiled in October to replace Fox Reality Channel.
