Eutelsat, Blue Ant Media, iKO Partner for Two New HD Channels
Eutelsat, Blue Ant Media, and iKO Media Group have joined forces to distribute two High Definition (HD) channels, ZooMoo and Love Nature HD, as well as Love Nature 4K (Ultra-HD), across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
ZooMoo is a children’s channel with more than 500 hours of original content. The channel offers wildlife footage, puppetry, animation and narration to create a learning experience for preschool viewers. Love Nature brings wildlife and nature fans of all ages a line-up of in-house natural history programming, with much of the content produced in 4K.
Blue Ant Media and iKO Media Group are leveraging capacity on two Eutelsat satellites to bring the three channels to a broader audience base. The ZooMoo and Love Nature HD channels will use Eutelsat 9B satellite’s footprint to expand their audiences in Europe. Love Nature 4K is extending its reach with Eutelsat’s Hotbird neighborhood, a growing hub for Ultra-HD.
