Warner TV launched on Tribe in the Philippines and Indonesia today for subscribers on the OTT service. The announcement comes just before the September 26 debut of Young Sheldon, a brand new comedy series from Chuck Lorre and Big Bang Theory spinoff. Warner TV is the home to an array of DC superhero shows such as DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, Gotham, Supergirl, THE FLASH and iZOMBIE; comedy series such as THE BIG BANG THEORY and Angie Tribeca, dramas such as BLINDSPOT and The Last Ship; as well as blockbuster movies from the biggest franchises such as The Lord of the Rings, HARRY Potter and Batman, and the likes of Inception, Pacific Rim and Interstellar.
Vishal Dembla, Turner's General Manager for Southeast Asia, said: "Tribe viewers will very quickly be given a front-row seat to some of the best Hollywood TV, immediately after their US premieres. The timing couldn't be better - later this month and moving into October, the channel will be the ultimate destination for new and returning, same-day comedy, drama and action series."
"Tribe users are already fans of Korean content including Oh!K Channel from Turner, and we're excited to add on Warner TV to the platform, thus expanding the variety on offer. Warner TV strengthens our proposition to be the destination for up-to-date and fresh content in the OTT space, while also bringing us closer to competitor offerings that have historically focused on Hollywood shows," added Iskandar Samad, Chief Executive Officer of Tribe Limited.
Monthly subscription to Tribe is PHP69 in Philippines, and RP15,000 in Indonesia. New Tribe users can enjoy the first month free in both markets, and in addition to Korean drama, Anime and Asian movies, they can enjoy Hollywood TV shows on linear and on-demand from Warner TV starting immediately.
This announcement follows news earlier in the year that Warner TV will be available on the Astro pay-TV platform, and on their OTT streaming app Astro GO in Malaysia. That launch was part of a strategic regional partnership between Turner and Astro.
