A localised 24-hour version of the channel will be available on the major Spanish pay TV platforms, reaching 2.6 million subscribers across DTH, cable, IPTV and OTT services.
The channel will offer a mix of scripted and unscripted content that is targeted primarily to a female audience.
FOXLife will be tailored for Spanish viewers, with programming that will include The Good Wife and Scandal and local commissions including The World’s Best Chefs featuring chefs Ferrán Adrià, Michel Guérard, Joan Roca, Massimo Bottura, and José Andrés.
Much of this content will also be available through VoD and non-linear services, supported by affiliate platforms and other OTT services in Spain.
FOXLife will replace Fox Crime, with the latter’s series migrating mainly to Fox. Following this change, FIC’s TV offering in Spain will consist of two entertainment brands – Fox and FOXLife – three factual channels – National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, and the travel channel Viajar – and children’s channel, Baby TV, all of which have corresponding HD versions.
“We are thrilled to launch FOXLife in Spain. The brand is core to our global entertainment portfolio and its entry into this market signals FIC’s continued investment and confidence in Spain,” said Adam Theiler, EVP of FIC Southern Europe and Head of FIC Spain (pictured).
“We are looking forward to introducing this great product and to entertaining local audiences with its addictive content.”
