Love Nature 4K Expands in Southeast Asia, Lands First Linear Deal


Love Nature 4K is continuing its expansion across Southeast Asia and has landed its first linear deal in the region, with new carriage agreements across Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Myanmar.

The family-friendly channel featuring wildlife and nature programming is a joint venture between Blue Ant Media and Smithsonian Networks. Love Nature 4K’s recent carriage deals in the region via Blue Ant Media’s Kids & Global Networks division include agreements with First Media in Indonesia. This includes 4K TV platforms in Indonesia, and the channel will join the broadcaster’s existing lineup of Blue Ant Media channels such as Blue Ant Entertainment, Blue Ant Extreme and ZooMoo. Other deals were struck with Papua New Guinea-based pay-TV provider Digicel Play and Canal+ Myanmar FG in Myanmar.

“It is our mission to deliver high-quality programming to engaged audiences across the Asia-Pacific region,” said Beatrice Lee, the CEO of Blue Ant Media Asia Pacific. “These new partnerships are integral to Love Nature 4K’s ongoing expansion, reaching a wider audience of wildlife and nature fans of all ages, while supporting conservation and preservation efforts to save our planet.”
