7 December 2017, Singapore – FYITM (Singtel TV Ch 260 / StarHub TV Ch 404), A+E Networks® Asia’s entertainment destination offering inspiring lifestyle programming across food, travel, property and leisure, was number one in average primetime ratings across all eight reported lifestyle channels on pay-TV for November 2017, among pay-TV viewers ages 15 and over, in Singapore.
Singapore pay-TV viewers tuned in particularly to FYI’s property-themed programmes including You Can’t Turn That Into A House!, Zombie House Flipping, Tiny House World and Buying the View, which contributed strong ratings to FYI.
“Singapore pay-TV viewers are very savvy and it is no mean feat for FYI’s inspiring content offerings to have won them over. We are looking forward to keeping the pipeline of excellent A+E Networks’ content on FYI flowing and will add some regional flavour with originals from South Korea on travel, fashion and food programming in the months ahead,” said Prem Kamath, Deputy Managing Director, Asia Pacific, A+E Networks.
In addition to carriage on StarHub TV, FYI and the rest of A+E Networks Asia’s channels HISTORYTM, LifetimeTM, Crime+InvestigationTM and H2TM launched in October on Singtel TV, to become available to all pay-TV viewers in Singapore. Viewership from both pay-TV platforms in Singapore contributed almost equally to FYI ratings in November.
Continuing in the property vein in December, FYI viewers can look forward to Ace This Space, an FYI Asia original TV special featuring Zack Giffin and John Weisbarth. The hosts of popular franchise Tiny House Nation took time out during HISTORYCon Manila to refurbish and reorganize a 14-month-old’s cluttered room with some local help. They put together a clever pulley system and dual use furniture in just two days. Ace This Space premieres on 26 December, Tuesday at 8.30pm (SIN/HK).
Other FYI shows in December include You Can’t Turn That Into a House with new episodes airing on Tuesdays at 8pm (SIN/HK); fresh episodes of Tiny House Hunting Season 4 on Mondays at 8pm; while Christmas-themed episodes of Tiny House Hunting make the ‘A Tiny X’mas’ special airing on Monday, 25 December from 8pm.
