Warner TV’s ratings in Singapore, Philippines bolstered by new content from Turner channels

Warner TV has emerged as the leading international English general-entertainment channel in the Philippines and cemented its place as the top English GE channel in Singapore, according to the latest Kantar Media data ranking.

The ratings successes come as the channel has doubled-down on its content investment by adding a string of original series from Turner’s own studios, supplementing its existing line-up from Warner Bros. New shows scheduled this year include TNT’s The Last Ship (S3), Rizzoli & Isles (S7) and Murder in the First (S3), TBS’ Angie Tribeca (S2), truTV’s Billy on the Street, Those Who Can’t and Adam Ruins Everything, and Robot Chicken, Eagleheart and NTSF:SD:SUV from Adult Swim.

Marianne Lee, VP-General Entertainment Content at Turner Asia Pacific and Warner TV Content Head, said, “Turner is creating more quality content than ever, and Warner TV has really been able to engage its audiences across the region with its unrivalled depth and breadth of programming. We are in an exceptionally fortunate position where we can pick and choose the very best content from TNT, TBS, truTV, Adult Swim in addition to the channel’s content partner, Warner Bros.”

In the Philippines, ranking and category share was at almost 30% in May, outpacing its nearest competitor by more than 6%. In Singapore, Warner TV has been the clear leader in its competitive set for the whole year to date. Over the past year, Warner TV has also been able to attract a younger audience, amassing a fanbase in the coveted demo of cable 25-44 through the DC Comics-inspired shows such as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, ARROW, Gotham, Supergirl and The Flash.

Other high-profile Turner original series that have been greenlit either for pilots or full series this year include TNT’s Tales from the Crypt (M. Night Shyamalan), Good Behavior (Michelle Dockery), Will, Civil and TBS’ Wrecked and The Detour. ELEAGUE, the new professional eSports league organized by Turner and WME | IMG, also airs on the channel with the final broadcast live on 31st July, 2016.
