Fox adds another channel to its SEA offerings
Fox International Channels is providing another movie channel – the Star Chinese Movies (SCM) Southeast Asia feed – to audiences in South-East Asia.
Fox says the new channel builds on SCM’s offering for viewers around the world to access the latest Chinese-language blockbuster movies and other premium content.
The SCM Southeast Asia (SEA) feed takes the premium Chinese entertainment channel to a total of eight feeds, which Fox says makes SCM the largest and farthest reaching Chinese-language channel.
SCM’s other feeds include SCM Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore in Standard and High Definition and SCM International, whose footprint covers Canada, the USA, Australia and was recently launched in New Zealand.
SCM’s SEA feed is available in Thailand via affiliate partners GMMZ and MeTV, and in Indonesia via First Media, Big TV, Parabola Orange TV, Skynindo and will be available on Aora TV from December 2013.
Cora Yim, Vice President of the Chinese Channels Group at Fox International Channels, says “The launch of SCM’s new feed for Southeast Asia marks another milestone for FIC’s ambitious goals to develop and promote Chinese entertainment as premium crossover content, not just in Asia but worldwide. With our global scale, steady investment in not just acquiring but also producing content, and established channel brand of SCM, FIC is in a great position to lead the charge in taking Chinese content global.”
Fox says SCM secures exclusive first-window rights for the best Chinese-language movies from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and other countries across Asia. Its line-up includes 12 movies that recently garnered a total 40 nominations at the 50th Golden Horse Awards, Taiwan’s prestigious annual film festival.
