Warner TV cements #1 position & adds 7th same-day drama to line-up
November 6, 2019
Warner TV, the No. 1 rating general entertainment channel in both Singapore and Mega Manila, has added another express drama, new blockbuster movies – and a cast of leading ladies – to its unparalleled mix of first-run and exclusive programming.
The exclusive Asia debut of Batwoman and the timeslot-winning premiere of Wonder Woman marked the launch of Warner TV’s new campaign “Fearless Femmes”. Batwoman arrived on screens in the Philippines and Singapore as the latest same-day series on the channel – sitting alongside six other express titles: Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Blindspot, Supergirl, Young Sheldon and The Flash.
Marianne Lee, Vice President of General Entertainment Content at WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Asia Pacific, said: “Warner TV is the premier destination in Southeast Asia for so many first-run Warner Bros. series, particularly the DC catalogue. Warner TV is the ‘home of the superfan’ and we’d like to thank our loyal viewers for tuning in to share in all the action and adventure.”
Warner TV is the No. 1 English GE channel among young adults 25-44 in Mega Manila in Q3, where Impractical Jokers, The Dunk King and Storage Hunters are also standout performers. In Singapore, Warner TV has been No.1 among young adults for 12 consecutive months since October 2018. There, The Flash S5 has ranked No. 1 among English GE channels in its primetime slot among males 25-44 in Q3, but other favourites include comedies The Carbonaro Effect, Friends and The Big Bang Theory.*
“Fearless Femmes” also includes crossover episodes from the famed Arrowverse. These include the Elsewords specials, which introduce Batwoman and Lois Lane, and features legendary female characters such as Killer Frost, Supergirl, Black Canary and White Canary.
It’s a case of ladies first… and men second. In November, Warner TV celebrates International Men’s Month with a campaign called “Hunky-Dory” boasting a heap of weekend movies. The premiere of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (November 30) will lead the charge alongside Batman and Superman, Tarzan and Kong: Skull Island.
