Sony Pictures Entertainment Networks Asia today launches AXN spinoff AXN Beyond on Hong Kong’s Now TV platform.
New net is branded for out-of-the-ordinary entertainment including sci-fi, suspense, horror, mystery/fantasy, the paranormal and the supernatural. “Lost” and “Supernatural” will migrate from AXN to AXN Beyond. Net will also program “Pushing Daisies” and older skeins “The X-Files” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
AXN Beyond bowed in the Philippines in January. Asian territories including Singapore and Malaysia are being lined up for local feeds in the coming months.
