The eScapes Network's President and Chairman of the Board, Robert A. Oklejas said, "We are confident eScapes entertainment will find its audience all over the world."
MONROE, MI, October 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- eScapes Network, in cooperation with Broad Branch Media in Alexandria, VA, have formed a partnership to bring the Network's programming to tens of millions of European homes today with live, unencrypted Direct-To-Home and Free-To-Air programming distribution from October 1, 2013. The Network is also marketing directly to cable operators looking to enhance their programming schedules with family-friendly relaxation television ideally suitable for home or offices. The signal distribution is direct to approximately 50 million homes on Hot Bird 13 with a potential market of over 122 million homes. eScapes and Broad Branch Media are actively engaging Europe's top advertising agencies to secure representation.
The eScapes Network's President and Chairman of the Board, Robert A. Oklejas said, "This is an important and historic time in the Network's growth. Even with current tightness in the European cable market coupled with mixed advertising spending, we are confident eScapes entertainment will find its audience all over the world." When asked why is eScapes different from other music channels, Oklejas clarified the question, "Our programming is way beyond a music service. For the listeners, the playlist is packed with popular music genres. Our live show hosts engage viewers through social media while they introduce the music artists and songs. The HD videos immerse viewers in location views that might be familiar or exotic."
"As a company that specializes in the transmission, distribution, and placement of television channels in new markets around the globe, Broad Branch Media is very fortunate to be able to work with the talented team at eScapes Network to cost effectively expand their global footprint, and to bring new innovative content to Europe," William O'Hara, President of Broad Branch Media, added during our last conversation.
