Viacom International and Channel 5’s newly launched Paramount Network has partnered with Red Bee Media on both its launch in the UK and key services going forward.
The channel launched in the UK at the beginning of July on Freeview, Sky, BT and TalkTalk.
Going forward, Red Bee will provide mission critical services in media management, transmission, VoD and access services for Paramount Network and Channel 5.
“This successful launch was the culmination of a collective effort and great team work within Red Bee Media along with Channel 5 and Viacom. Paramount is one of Viacom’s flagship brands and we are proud to have been part of making such a significant channel launch happen for Channel 5, delivering on time and on budget,” said David Travis, chief portfolio officer, video services, Red Bee Media.
