Celestial Tiger Entertainment expands its footprint in Vietnam

HONG KONG – Celestial Tiger Entertainment (CTE), operator of the largest bouquet of pan-Asian channels dedicated to Asian entertainment, announced today two new carriage agreements in Vietnam that expand CTE’s footprint there to over 3 million pay TV households. The newly-inked deals extend its action entertainment channel KIX onto Vietnam Television Cable Corporation (VTVCab), one of Vietnam’s largest cable operators and a fully-owned subsidiary of state-run broadcaster Vietnam Television; and nextTV, an IPTV and cable service provider owned by Viettel, Vietnam’s largest mobile network operator. These carriage agreements were closed by CTE’s Vietnam sales representative, Thaole Entertainment.

KIX will be available in both VTVCab’s Analog (Ch. 63) and Digital Pack (Ch. 60) reaching a potential audience of 2.4 million households in Vietnam. On nextTV, KIX will be included in Basic, Flexi and Family Packs (Ch. 42) reaching a potential 600,000 households.

“We are thrilled to see the enthusiasm for action entertainment by Vietnam’s pay TV operators and we are proud to meet this demand,” said Todd Miller, Chief Executive Officer, Celestial Tiger Entertainment. “KIX is a top-rated channel in key measured markets in Southeast Asia, and the channel’s rapid take-up in Vietnam is very encouraging.”  


Localized with Vietnamese subtitles, KIX offers a high-octane blend of combat sports, action series and action movies. In April, action fans in Vietnam can watch first and exclusive combat sport events such as Road FC, Kunlun Fight and TopKing World Series, action reality shows such as Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge and Top Gear USA, as well as action movies such as Gods of Egypt.
