October 8, 2013 07.28 Europe/London By Robert Briel

The Private Media Group will launch a new adult entertainment channel, PrivateTV, this month.

According to Private, the international version of the channel will be available on Eutelsat Hot Bird 13B while a French language version, PrivateTV France, with substantial original short form French language programming, will be available separately.

“With a refreshing scene driven format, thematic scheduling and the iconic Private brand we deliver the promise of the on-line experience to the TV, the only platform which can adequately convey the quality of our content. Of course Private has been in the European broadcast market for over a dozen years and is already a library and branding partner with Playboy Plus who operates and distributes Private Spice. We expect Private Spice and PrivateTV to be complementary in the market.” said Private´s CEO Charles Prast.

Private will be working in close cooperation with tmc Content Group AG, a stakeholder in this new venture and through its subsidiary tmc Content Group GmbH in Berlin, a German language adult broadcaster and telemedia service provider.

“tmc is already well positioned for over a decade as the dominant provider of compliant adult themed broadcast channels and telemedia services content in the DACH market. Our association with Private, an existing preferred content supplier to tmc, will be further enhanced by this venture.” tmc`s managing director Andreas Fischer said.
