DMC, the European media gateway, has added Blaze Italy to its portfolio of A+E Networks channels. The HD factual entertainment channel is powered by DMC’s fully virtualised playout platform, which enables broadcasters and content providers to shrink time to market, reduce hardware requirements and maintain full control over their content.
Launched exclusively with Sky in Italy on channel number 119, Blaze broadcasts factual entertainment content produced by A+E Networks in HD quality, ranging from reality shows through to docu-series.
“Having worked alongside DMC to launch our Crime+Investigation and History Italy channels, we have established a deep understanding and trusted relationship, founded on professionalism, care and quality of service,” says Sherin Salvetti, General Manager of A+E Networks Italy. “Blaze is the third channel we have managed with DMC in Italy and it was enabled with perfect execution. DMC’s new fully virtualised platform has allowed us to increase our presence in the region, enabling us to deliver a wider range of dynamic, compelling, higher quality content to specific audiences.”
