Blue Ant Media is expanding the reach of its Love Nature channel in Europe.
The 4K natural history channel has become available in Slovakia via local operator Antik Telecom, with thew deal brokered by Chiara McKee, VP of EMEA, kids and global networks at Blue Ant.
Antik subscribers will have access to Love Nature’s library of original programming, which includes Dogs With Extraordinary Jobs from Oxford Scientific Films, four-parter sea life show Great Blue Wild and Monkey Island, which explores an ancient citadel in Sri Lanka that has become home reclaimed by wildlife.
Hundreds of hours of natural history content will be available in 4K and HD on the channels’ linear and on-demand platforms, which will be localised in Slovakia.
“This deal significantly grows Love Nature’s footprint in Central Europe,” said Ward Platt, CEO for global networks and kids at Blue Ant. “Bringing the channel to Antik Telecom allows us to share our stunning natural history programming with even more wildlife and nature fans in Slovakia.”
The expansion follows the launch of Love Nature in Slovakia on Skylink, M7’s pay-TV platform, in June 2019. The channel also launched on Sky in August across the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Italy, as part of a multi-year pan-European deal.
