A+E Networks has launched Blaze in Italy.
It follows the entertainment channel’s UK launch last year.
Unlike the UK, where the channel is available on free-to-air platforms Freeview and Freesat as well as Sky, Blaze will only be available on Sky Italia.
Blaze broadcasts factual entertainment programming, including Storage Wars and Billy The Exterminator.
“We are proud to continue the growth of Blaze with the launch in Italy with Sky,” said Dean Possenniskie, GM, EMEA, A+E Networks. “The new channel strengthens the position of A+E Networks Italy, where the company is already present with History and Crime+Investigation channels, both broadcast on Sky.”
“The launch of Blaze enriches and implements A+E Networks Italy offer on Sky Italia,” said Sherin Salvetti, general manager of A+E Networks Italy.
“In a few years our company has become a strong player in the Italian TV market, working closely with Sky Italia, taking advantage from the great A+E Networks content portfolio and developing local compelling stories for the Italian audience.”
