Fashion One’s Latest Expansion Strengthens Dominance and Locks-in New Markets

Fashion One’s CEO, Ashley Jordan, said, “These agreements strengthen our position across five continents including, Europe, Africa, Asia, Middle East and Latin America. Our agreements with TrueVisions in Thailand, Orange TV in France, and with Belgacom TV and Telenet in Belgium, are major milestones in our expansion. This showcase our high quality, original content approach clearly appeals in these markets.”
