AXN Takes Top Spot as Philippines’ No. 1 English General Entertainment Channel

AXN, the flagship English general entertainment (GE) channel of Sony Pictures Television (SPT) Networks, Asia once again had audiences across the country riveted, coveting the No. 1 spot as the country’s top English GE channel for the last 12 months.

AXN ended 2017 claiming a 21 per cent prime time share among 20 English GE channels, cementing its position as the dominant leader in the English GE category.

AXN also retained the top spot in its category in the opening quarter of this year with an even bigger dominance within the English GE space.

“Viewers are spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment options, so we’re thrilled that AXN continues to be the preferred destination for Pinoys to get their content fix,” said Armi Malaluan, Director and Business Head, AXN Networks Philippines. “We know what our fans want, and it’s all about creating meaningful entertainment that they live, breathe and crave. We have a powerful line-up of series and events planned for the rest of the year, kicking off with America’s Got Talent later this month, so tune in for more thrills!”

AXN’s recent feats are attributed to its roster of groundbreaking original productions, such as Asia’s Got Talent and Adventure Your Way; top-rated drama series, and award-winning reality shows, making the channel the viewers’ clear favorite when it comes to entertainment.

To maintain its leadership throughout 2018, AXN will unleash a stellar programming line-up, including some of the most highly anticipated and popular new and returning drama series and reality shows.

The first two on the schedule are two of the world’s most iconic entertainment reality series: Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent. SPT Networks, Asia recently announced a multi-year licensing agreement with FremantleMedia International to acquire the two reality giants, and together with Asia’s Got Talent, they make a perfect trifecta for fans of talent competitions.
