Sky Italia extends X Factor, Italia’s Got Talent rights

August 28, 2015

Sky Italia will remain the home of the X Factor and Italia’s Got Talent after it signed a new contract extension to its current deal with FremantleMedia.

The pay-TV platform will continue to broadcast two of Italy’s most successful formats and flagship shows of Sky’s entertainment offer until 2018.

This new deal with FremantleMedia means Sky will broadcast three more X Factor series, in addition to the much anticipated new season which is premiering on September 10th on Sky Uno HD, and two new series of Italia’s Got Talent, on top of next season which has been already confirmed and is due to start in March 2016.

Andrea Zappia, CEO Sky Italia, comments: “Sky continues to deliver an unrivalled choice of quality unscripted entertainment in Italy, with world-leading formats such as X Factor and Italia’s Got Talent. This new deal with FremantleMedia allows us to guarantee that Sky’s subscribers receive unequalled access to brand new series with many enhanced features for two of Italy’s favourite shows. We strongly believe these exciting new series will be well received by fans from both shows but will also broaden the appeal to attract new audiences and fans.”
