A+E Networks and TV18 in India will launch FYI TV18, a contemporary factual lifestyle and entertainment network, across DTH, digital and analogue cable platforms this July.
FYI TV18 will initially feature over 100 hours of Hindi-language programming, including 3 locally produced shows at launch.
Sean Cohan, President International and Digital media said, “We are delighted that FYI TV18 will soon be available to Indian viewers. FYI has been a tremendously strong brand for us in the United States, as the most upscale network in cable. India presents strong growth opportunities for A+E Networks’ global portfolio strategy and we’d like to replicate the success of HISTORY TV18 as well as other powerful global brands in our bouquet, starting with FYI TV18.”
