APOS Spotlight: Turner Asia Pacific

Turner Asia Pacific will have a strong presence at APOS, from a distribution, syndication and acquisitions standpoint.

“We’ve already had a pretty impressive start to 2017,” says Vishal Dembla, the VP and general manager of Turner Southeast Asia. “Across the whole region, Turner’s kids’ channels began the year as the number one international portfolio, while Warner TV is currently the number one and two general-entertainment channel in Singapore and the Philippines, respectively. Oh!K is also showing great promise in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong on the back of two recent blockbuster Korean drama hits: Saimdang and Goblin.”

TNT recently launched in 15 million homes across Thailand, and CNN International also continues to thrive across the Asia Pacific.

“More than any other year, Turner is on the lookout for great content across a wider range of genres,” says Dembla.
