Three new channels have arrived on Euskaltel's pay-TV platform: FOX Life replaces FOX Crime; A&E follows the US channel's European launch; and Tribo TV is making its world debut in Spain.
FOX International Channels (FIC) is reorganising its content offer around the world, leading to FOX Crime being replaced by FOX Life, a new channel which includes fictional and non-fictional content as well as shows from the Crime network. With this move, FOX will continue to broadcast six channels in Spain: FOX, FOX Life, National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, Viajar and Baby TV.
Through the new FOX channel, Euskaltel will show acclaimed series such as The Good Wife, Grey's Anatomy and Revenge, along with shows including Jamie Oliver, The Kardashians and The Voice.
A&E lands on the cable platform following a major European and African rebranding. Under the banner Be Original, A&E is replacing BIO and aims to lead Spanish audience figures as it does in the US and many of the 75 countries in which it's available. Factual shows such as Wahlburgers, Big Smo and Duck Dynasty will be broadcast on the new channel, which is produced in Spain and Portugal by AMC Networks International Iberia (formerly Chello Media) and A+E Networks.
Tribo TV will be premiering in Spain on various platforms throughout the coming months. The new channel will bring the most successful YouTubers to the small screen, aiming to create a new concept of TV.
