Entertainment Studios To Launch Automotive TV in January

Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios will park another 24-hour digital subchannel, Automotive.TV, in its lot next year.

The network, dedicated to automotive programming, will be made available to broadcast TV stations nationwide in January 2015 and will air original HD content.

“Automotive advertising is the largest ad category for most broadcast television stations throughout the country, and having Automotive.TV will give those television stations the competitive advantage to get a greater share and higher CPMs from the automotive category,” said Allen, founder, chairman and CEO of Entertainment Studios. “Compelling and entertaining original content is in short supply on these digital subchannels, and we are thrilled to position our affiliates to own automotive—the most lucrative advertising category.”

In addition to Automotive.TV, Entertainment Studios offers seven 24-hour HD cable networks: Cars.TV, Comedy.TV, ES.TV, MyDesitination.TV, Pets.TV, Justice Central.TV and Recipe.TV.
