With calls for greater diversity in broadcasting high on the news agenda in the United Kingdom, CaribBe TV is offering an exciting new development in programming. By launching the premier Caribbean OTT TV service, live and on-demand, CaribBe TV is aiming to fill the gap in the market in the UK and Europe
The Caribbean/West Indian community accounts for about 12% of the overall population, in particular in metropolitan areas in the South East and Northern England, and is one of the longest settled communities in the UK. Despite the high number of first, second and third generation West Indians who call the UK home, there is still a distinct lack of quality TV programming from the Caribbean, unlike programming on offer for other ethnic communities.
CaribBe TV will broadcast the best of the region’s news, sports, current affairs and special events; comedy, family, music & entertainment, as well as Caribbean cooking, cultural, educational, fashion, lifestyle and travel programmes. Aimed at both the Caribbean/West Indian Diaspora in the UK and any other residents who appreciate Caribbean culture and aspire for a Caribbean lifestyle, CaribBe TV offers unrestricted access to subscribers for authentic viewing originating from the region.
“We are thrilled to be working with Cloudio TV, at the start of a long and fruitful partnership. Through their innovative and effective marketing and distribution we are able to grow together and bring the Caribbean, not only to the UK and Europe, but to the World” says Jo Spalburg, managing director of Caribbean Media Partners.
