MUMBAI: The RTL Group is joining forces with CBS Studios International to launch two channels, one focused on general entertainment and the other featuring reality, action and extreme sports, across South East Asia.

RTL Group began targeting Asia in 2011, partnering with Reliance Broadcast Network to launch the BIG RTL Thrill network in India in 2012. CBS Studios International also has a partnership with Reliance in India for three channels: BIG CBS Prime, BIG CBS Spark and BIG CBS Love.

The RTL-CBS venture, RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network, will be based in Singapore, reporting to a board featuring representatives from both companies. It will operate RTL CBS Entertainment, slated for a September 2013 launch, delivering shows like FremantleMedia's The X Factor, America's Got Talent and Celebrity Apprentice and CBS's Elementary and Under the Dome. In spring 2014, RTL CBS Extreme will roll out offering action/adventure, reality series and extreme sports, such as NCIS: Los Angeles, Hawaii Five-0 and Fear Factor. The channels will have ongoing access to content from FremantleMedia and CBS Studios International.

RTL Group co-CEO Guillaume de Posch said, "We are delighted to team up with CBS Studios International. By joining forces with such a renowned global partner, we are continuing our tried-and-tested build strategy, expanding our business to more countries in Asia with high growth potential. CBS is a highly creative and professional organisation with world-leading content which complements FremantleMedia's catalogue very well. I am very confident that this venture will benefit strongly from the combined broadcasting and production expertise of both parties."

CBS Global Distribution Group president and CEO Armando Nu?ez added, "This is another opportunity to use CBS's internationally successful content to be part of a new channel venture in one of the world's fastest growing TV regions. It's even better to do it with a best-in-class partner such as RTL Group, one of the most accomplished and respected broadcasters anywhere. We're excited to create an additive way to monetise our content in Asia and provide audiences throughout the region the best television from two of the world's most successful programming companies."
