MUMBAI: BIG RTL Thrill with its new additions is all set
to turn up the entertainment quotient for men through the
weekends. The channel which is available in dual feeds of
Hindi and English will premier two internationally recognised
shows - Bellator and Love in the Wild starting 5 October.
The new line up will kick-start with Bellator, the largest
tournament based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion in the
world. The world renowned series that was launched in 2008
has showcased nine successful seasons internationally and
holds tournaments across weight classes. With Bellator, BIG
RTL Thrill aims to give its audiences an hour of exclusive
and exceptional action entertainment.
Next on the anvil is Love in the Wild. The show is a reality
based programme wherein ten young and single girls and boys
are marooned on an island in Costa Rica. The boys and girls
are paired as couples and participate in various adventurous
activities while they seek love. In order to find true love,
the contestants have to undergo hardships and challenges that
will test their compatibility, chemistry and mental grit.
BIG RTL Thrill vice president Vijay Koshy said, "We
are delighted to bring these two new fantastic shows to our
audiences over weekends. While Bellator is an internationally
well established property amongst mixed martial art fans,
Love in the Wild promises to provide for scintillating content
in the late night slot. We are confident that this mix of
action-entertainment shows will work well with audiences,
while offering marketers with properties that promise best
The new shows on the channel aim to tap into the expanded
market for BIG RTL Thrill following its dual-feed launch earlier
this year. The channel, which is available on all leading
networks, offers male viewers international action-programming
in both Hindi and English across key 1mn+ HSMs.
