Diva Universal to replace Hallmark
Universal Networks International (UNI) has announced its plans to launch a new entertainment channel, Diva Universal, in Asia on 19 September.

Diva Universal will replace Hallmark Channel reaching more than 20 million viewers across 21 Asian countries. The launch of Diva Universal is part of UNI’s global expansion strategy and the roll out of its refocussed portfolio of five flagship channel brands.

Diva Universal is an entertainment channel for those who fully embrace and celebrate life. The feel-good mix of drama and engaging reality shows on Diva Universal is designed to deliver a viewing experience for modern discerning viewers in their 20s and 30s.

UNI MD Raymund Miranda said, “The launch of Diva Universal completes the roll out of our newly branded channel portfolio for 2010. This is the beginning of an amazing brand experience for our viewers, platform partners and advertisers. Diva Universal boasts a fresh prime time schedule that we’re very excited about”.

UNI president Roma Khanna says, “As a premier entertainment company, UNI is committed to bringing a robust entertainment experience to local audiences. DIVA Universal is a compelling brand with a warmth and zest for life that will certainly be an inviting proposition for our viewers. DIVA Universal will be powered by original and first-run content as well as exclusive top-quality acquired programming. It is set to be the channel of choice for women all around the world.”

The launch of Diva Universal in September will also see the debut of two highly-anticipated original productions – Rookie Blue, the breakout US police drama which has already been given the green light for season two and is currently number one in its timeslot with over seven million US viewers per episode and the second season of Asia’s weight-loss competition series, The Biggest Loser Asia.

Premiering during Diva Universal’s launch week are reality shows with attitude, like Fashion Show featuring Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland, and cooking-competition series, Top Chef. Furthermore, exclusive first-run content such as The Good Wife and The Oprah Winfrey Show will also form the cornerstones of Diva Universal’s coveted schedule.

Since 2007, UNI has grown its business by delivering top quality content and brands and consistently building scale, increasing its international presence from 14 channels to 70 channels in 2010 and with the aim of reaching close to 100 channels in the next year.
