Love Nature channel now available on Canal+ in Africa

Online and linear wildlife and nature channel Love Nature has been introduced in more than 25 African countries on pay-TV platform Canal+.

Love Nature, a partnership between Blue Ant Media and Smithsonian Networks, is now accessible in more than 100 countries on pay-TV platforms such as Sky, Rogers, Virgin and Starhub, as well as streaming outlets like The Roku Channel, Amazon Channels, Apple Plus and Pluto TV.

The Films’ 6 x 60-minute series Malawi Wildlife Rescue, which takes a look inside the country’s only wildlife rescue centre that cares for injured and abandoned animals until they are ready to be released back into the wild will be accessible to the African region.

In the meantime, Plimsoll Production’s 18 x 60-minute series Africa’s Hunters gives us an insight on the lives of some of Zambia’s most incredible predators – including lions, leopards and hyenas.

The CEO, global networks and kids of Blue Ant Media, Ward Platt, commented, “Bringing Love Nature to Canal+ audiences is a significant milestone for the channel as we expand the family-friendly brand’s footprint across Africa. This deal is a great example of our commitment to partnering with platforms around the world to give our premium wildlife and nature programming content a truly global audience.”

On the other hand, Alexandre Gruner, SVP channels acquisitions and partnerships, Canal+ International, said, “Love Nature reinforces our discovery channels’ offering, bringing more series and documentaries dedicated to nature. This new content will be very appreciated by our subscribers in African countries.”
