“These partnerships reflect Curiosity’s multipronged approach to its business relationships,” said Bakori Davis, Curiosity’s Global Head of Partnerships and Distribution. “Our full product set - from localized channels to integrated app offerings and direct licensing opportunities - create a range of monetization paths for both us and our partners as we connect with audiences across the globe.”
Recent launch partners include Amazon’s Prime Video Channels in India; Telstra- and Astro Malaysia-backed Fetch TV in Australia; The Netherland’s largest MVPD, Ziggo, owned by Liberty Global and Vodafone; NLziet, the Dutch streamer operated by the three major Dutch broadcasting groups, NPO, RTL and Talpa; Mexico’s Izzi Telecom, owned by Grupo Televisa; and Central and Eastern European distributors MTS, Telekom Slovenia, and Megafon, among others.
