Celestial Tiger Entertainment (CTE) has agreed new carriage contracts for its pan-Asian entertainment channels in Cambodia, Indonesia and, for the first time, also Laos.

CELESTIAL TIGER LOGO 24 Jan 2017The deals include the distribution of Celestial Movies (CM), the 24-hour first-run Chinese movie channel; KIX, for action entertainment; and Thrill, which is claimed to be Asia’s only regional horror, thriller and suspense movie channel.

As a result of the deal, Indonesian cable pay-TV provider First Media will carry Celestial Movies and KIX; direct-to-home (DTH) satellite operator LaoSAT will now carry KIX and Thrill; and Cambodia’s PPCTV will now offer KIX, alongside Celestial Classic Movies (CCM) which it already offered.

“We are thrilled to further expand and deepen our footprint across Southeast Asia,” said Todd Miller, CEO, Celestial Tiger Entertainment. “These new carriage deals, with more to come in 2018, reflect the high performance, high quality, and high value that CTE’s channels deliver.”
