October 12, 2022
EarthxTV, the Dallas-based TV entertainment network dedicated to environmental sustainability, is now available in millions of households in the UK, the US and Europe through distribution deals with Charter Communications and the NCTC in the US, Sky and Freeview in the UK, and M7 in Europe.
The deals mark the launch of the ad-supported network with leading distribution platforms (MVPDs). The 24/7 linear network caters to audiences increasingly attuned to those pressing issues affecting our planet.
“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with leading distribution platforms in key global markets to bring our eco-centric programming to an audience that cares about where and how we live,” commented Rajan Singh, Head of Distribution for EarthxTV. “EarthxTV programming not only highlights the issues facing us but also accentuates the beauty of this planet we all share. From highlighting the importance of killer bees to in-depth looks at deforestation to fun DIY upcycling programming, our network features a deep and diverse look into how the average American can make a difference in this world.”
EarthxTV is available immediately across the US of customers who subscribe to Charter’s Spectrum TV Select video package as part of the Spectrum Select entertainment package, and through EarthxTV’s affiliation agreement with the NCTC. The network launched in August on Sky and Freeview in the UK and is scheduled to be available across Europe through its partnership with M7 before the end of the year.
EarthxTV distributes hundreds of hours of original and acquired series, along with short films and feature-length documentaries from all over the globe.
“Charter’s goal is to offer programming that meets the interests of our customers and the communities we serve – and now that includes EarthxTV,” said Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President of Programming Acquisition for Charter, which operates the Spectrum brand of video, broadband, mobile and voice services. “Our agreement to add EarthxTV to our lineup will provide millions of Spectrum subscribers with access to the network’s original mix of entertaining and informative, eco-focused programming, on issues important to many of our customers.”
