This is Alchimie’s first content acquisition deal in Japan, and it will add an Asian touch to the existing science and wildlife programming in Alchimie’s library.
Alchimie distributes its multi-language library of premium factual content via editorially themed SVoD 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.
Nicolas d’Hueppe, CEO of Alchimie, said: “NHK is one of the world’s most admired broadcasters and producers, and is renowned for its high-quality programmes; and we’re proud that Alchimie’s first agreement with Asia is with such a prestigious partner.”
Chie Muto, executive manager content distribution at NHK Enterprises, said: “We’re 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.
“We’re delighted that by working with Alchimie some of NHK’s best shows will find new audiences to entertain and engage across the UK and Australia.”
