Curiosity Signs New Distribution Partnerships


Curiosity has lined up new partnerships helping to expand its global footprint in Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and Australia.

The new relationships incorporating subscription apps and channels will help deliver Curiosity’s nonfiction films, series and shows to several million new paying subscribers around the world. Recent launch partners include Amazon’s Prime Video Channels in India; Telstra- and Astro Malaysia-backed Fetch TV in Australia; the Netherlands’ Ziggo, owned by Liberty Global and Vodafone; NLziet, the Dutch streamer operated by NPO, RTL and Talpa; Mexico’s Izzi Telecom, owned by Grupo Televisa; and Central and Eastern European distributors MTS, Telekom Slovenia and Megafon.

“These partnerships reflect Curiosity’s multipronged approach to its business relationships,” said Bakori Davis, Curiosity’s global head of partnerships and distribution. “Our full product set—from localized channels to integrated app offerings and direct licensing opportunities—creates a range of monetization paths for both us and our partners as we connect with audiences across the globe.”

“In addition to swiftly building a critical-mass content library with global appeal and global rights, our past investment in languaging and localizing our content is enabling us to expand quickly and aggressively both directly and with scale partners,” said Curiosity’s president and CEO, Clint Stinchcomb.
