Action sports channel Fuel TV has launched on Middle East pay TV provider OSN.
The channel, which focuses on action sports and lifestyle, was acquired in EMEA from Fox by Portugal-based Fluid Youth Culture last year. Fuel TV will become a 24/7 HD channel only available on the Eutelsat Eurobird 9 satellite from February.
“We are delighted that Fuel TV has found such a high-profile and enthusiastic partner in the Middle East committed to bringing the very best in action sports programming to the region. With Fuel TV’s unique combination of live sports events from the likes of the WST surf tour, and the world’s leading motocross and skateboarding championships to irreverent shows about up and coming action sports stars, this channel speaks to the all-important youth demographic and pulls them back to the TV set,” said Fernando Figueiredo, CEO of Fuel TV EMEA.
