In what is the company’s first acquisition contract in the country, content aggregator Alchimie has begun a content deal with NHK Enterprises to distribute a range of wildlife programming.

Nicolas DHueppe Alchimie 22Oct2019Alchimie distributes its multi-language library of premium factual content via editorially-themed SVOD subscription channels including the wildlife-focused Species and geopolitical channel Humanity. The channels are distributed to over 40 digital platforms and telcos across Europe, including to TVPlayer, Alchimie’s recently acquired UK based OTT platform. The new deal adds to the existing science and wildlife programming already in Alchimie’s library, which now stands at 40,00 hours of premium factual content across nature, travel, sport, crime, military and current affairs genres.

Alchimie says that NHK’s programming is often seen as the gateway to Asia bringing a Japanese perspective and fresh insights on current events and different ways of viewing the world. “NHK is one of the world’s most admired broadcasters and producers, and is renowned for its high quality programmes,” said Alchimie Nicolas d’Hueppe (pictured). “We’re proud that Alchimie’s first agreement with Asia is with such a prestigious partner.”

“We were impressed with the range and quality of Alchimie’s SVOD channels, and their expert eye for the curation of premium documentary content delivers a compelling viewing proposition,” added Chie Muto, executive manager content distribution at NHK Enterprises. “We’re delighted that by working with Alchimie some of NHK’s best shows will find new audiences to entertain and engage across UK and Australia.”
