Adult content specialist Private Media Group is to launch a new TV entertainment channel – PrivateTV – later this month on the Eutelsat 13B satellite at 13° East.
Private will also launch a French-language version of the channel, PrivateTV France with original short form French language programming.
The company has teamed up with TMC Content Group, a stakeholder in the new venture and owner of a leading German language adult broadcaster, to launch the service. Private already supplied content to TMC under a separate deal.
“Simply put, PrivateTV and PrivateTV France are exclusive, original and addictive. With a refreshing scene driven format, thematic scheduling and the iconic Private brand we deliver the promise of the on-line experience to the TV, the only platform which can adequately convey the quality of our content. Of course Private has been in the European broadcast market for over a dozen years and is already a library and branding partner with Playboy Plus who operates and distributes Private Spice. We expect Private Spice and PrivateTV to be complementary in the market.” Private’s CEO Charles Prast said. “Private has always focused on innovative operator friendly strategies to provide entertainment to their viewers and the launch of PrivateTV is a further endeavor in this direction.”
