According to latest reports, A+E Networks will be launching its channel FYI in India in partnership with the Reliance owned TV18 Broadcast. This will be the second channel to be launched under the two companies’ joint venture A+E Network TV18. The first HistoryTV18 has been operational for the past four plus years in India.
The announcement was made by A+E Networks EVP & CFO David Granville-Smith. He stated that there will be close to 100 hours of original locally produced factual series on FYITV18 when it launches.
FYITV18, according to its website, embraces an adventurous, personalized and non-prescriptive approach to peoples’ taste, space, look, story and more. FYI covers a range of stories and experiences that reflect how people actually live their lives today, not defined by just one passion or interest.
