TechTV storms LatAm, Middle East, S. Korea

'Sex,' 'Zip,' 'Future' among programs licensed out

HOLLYWOOD — TechTV, which reaches more than 43 million subscribers in the U.S. and whose content is seen in more than 70 million homes worldwide, has secured new licensing deals with broadcast and cable outlets in South Korea, the Middle East and, for the first time, Latin America.

All 13 episodes of TechTV’s series “Wired for Sex” were licensed to A&E Mundo, which is distributed in Central America, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean. Five episodes of “Zip File” and all 13 episodes of “Future Fighting Machines” were licensed to South Korea’s Educational Broadcasting System.

In the Middle East, TechTV licensed 79 hours of programming to the U.S. government-supported channel Alhurra (previously known as Middle Eastern Television Network). Included in the package are 130 episodes of “Tech Live,” 26 episodes of “Zip File,” and the hour-long documentary “Music Wars” about the peer-to-peer file-sharing debate.

World appeal

“This is a fantastic way to kick off 2004,” says TechTV VP Peter Gochis. “Given the diverse regions we are selling to, these agreements really serve to illustrate just how universally appealing our programming is.”

TechTV is the cable and satellite network that showcases the smart, edgy, and unexpected side of technology. TechTV is available in more than 43 million Nielsen homes in the U.S. and distributes content to more than 70 countries.
