Narrative Entertainment to Roll Out New Channel


Narrative Entertainment is expanding its GREAT! Network with the new free-to-air channel GREAT! Real, set to launch on March 20.

Content on the channel will include titles such as Heathrow: Britain’s Busiest Airport; Paddington Station 24/7; Island Medics; Emergency Rescue: Air, Land and Sea; and Coast Guard Alaska. Launching on Freeview and Sky, GREAT! Real is the first channel in the GREAT! Network to showcase unscripted content.

The expansion follows the company’s success of the past year, including the launch of the on-demand GREAT! Player app.

Steve Hornsey, Narrative Entertainment’s VP of movies and entertainment, said: “Narrative Entertainment is excited to invite even more new viewers to enjoy our growing GREAT! Network with the addition of GREAT! Real, our first channel dedicated to non-scripted storytelling. With an array of observational series focusing on dramatic real-life events and human stories, GREAT! Real will take audiences to the heart of the action with an exciting, engaging and relatable content mix that perfectly complements our existing brands.”
