Antenna Group has one of the largest regionally relevant content libraries, with an international appeal. The content distribution business exploits a wide range of proprietary, third-party and co-financed productions across free-to-air, pay TV and web platforms.
In 2017 Antenna concluded a format deal with ITV and in 2018 Antenna signed a Distribution deal to manage all Propagate content in E Europe.
To date the proprietary content library includes 6,800 hours of TV series and entertainment programs which are licensed to broadcasters in North America, Europe and Australia.
The production teams are some of the most skilled creative professionals in their region and have produced some of the highest rating programs in their countries including leading Greek dramas such as “Vendetta”, “Two at Heart” and “Brousko”, Serbian hit series “Folk”, “Budva-na pjenu od mora” and “Zene sa Dedinja”.
In addition to the development of own formats and the production of own series, the Group works with international production companies to adapt, produce and broadcast programs such as Dancing With the Stars, Dancing on Ice, Next Top Model, The Next Uri Geller, X- Factor, Greece Got Talent and Your Face Sounds Familiar.
Through the newly launched distribution division Antenna Group International Enterprises, the Group is promoting and selling abroad the original content it creates. It has successfully launched the Greek drama series Brousko in Serbia, Slovenia and Georgia, while selling other drama and comedy series of Antenna Group to Free to Air and Pay TV channels in many countries.
The Group launched in 2014 ANTS Production hub, a new business unit operating mainly in the creation, production and utilisation of content for Free and Pay TV and for the Internet. ANTS has a broad remit to produce both drama and comedy series as well as entertainment formats, not only for the Antenna Group channels but also for third party channels in all territories and platforms (FTA, WEBTV, PAY TV). The company operates across the wider region of Southeastern Europe, where Antenna Group has built over the years a very strong presence and is considered the largest Media and Entertainment Group, as well as in Turkey and Greece.
