Giuliano Berretta, a former CEO at satellite giant Eutelsat until 2009 (and Chairman until 2012), has launched Explorer’, a HD channel that’s “dedicated to the discovery and exploration of Italy as well as of other international realities”.
The Sky Italia broadcasts will be on Channel 176.
The Rome-based channel is produced by Oberon Media International, where Berretta is chairman. CEO at Oberon is Cristina Marques. Oberon Media has produced and co-produced films such as Nati due volte and Tra le onde, documentaries, formats, film screenings, festivals in Italy and abroad, and operas.
Oberon says the channel’s key formats will cover entertainment, factual TV and documentaries.
