Warner TV Grows Asian Footprint on Tribe


Warner TV has launched on Tribe in the Philippines and Indonesia for subscribers of the OTT service.

Warner TV is the home of a range of DC superhero shows such as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, Gotham, Supergirl, The Flash and iZOMBIE; comedy series such as The Big Bang Theory and Angie Tribeca; dramas such as Blindspot and The Last Ship; as well as blockbuster movies like The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Batman, Inception, Pacific Rim and Interstellar. The news follows an announcement earlier this year that Warner TV will be available on the Astro pay-TV platform, and on its OTT streaming app Astro GO in Malaysia. The launch was part of a strategic regional partnership between Turner and Astro.

Vishal Dembla, Turner’s general manager for Southeast Asia, said, “Tribe viewers will very quickly be given a front-row seat to some of the best Hollywood TV, immediately after their U.S. premieres. The timing couldn’t be better—later this month and moving into October, the channel will be the ultimate destination for new and returning, same-day comedy, drama and action series.”

Iskandar Samad, the CEO of Tribe, added, “Tribe users are already fans of Korean content, including Oh!K Channel from Turner, and we’re excited to add on Warner TV to the platform, thus expanding the variety on offer. Warner TV strengthens our proposition to be the destination for up-to-date and fresh content in the OTT space, while also bringing us closer to competitor offerings that have historically focused on Hollywood shows.”
