MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 15, 2016) - Cable & Wireless Communications, (CWC) the parent company of the Flow and LIME brands in the Caribbean, has signed a deal with Bravo Media, the premiere lifestyle and entertainment brand that drives the cultural conversation around its high-quality, interactive original content. The deal marks Bravo's first agreement in the region; Flow TV will begin airing Bravo programming in Trinidad, Jamaica, Grenada and St. Vincent and will soon launch across all of its markets within the Caribbean.
"This partnership represents another first for Flow and an exciting development for our customers," said John Reid, President of Flow. "Bravo has an enviable line up of original hit series that we know will appeal to a wide cross section of our customers. Ever since we entered the Caribbean over ten years ago, Flow has consistently led the development of the market, working with international providers to bring content cleared for airing in the region. This agreement with Bravo is yet another example of our ongoing commitment to ensure that we continue to work with our network provider partners to bring exciting and relevant content to customers in the region." Reid listed "IndiaCast's Aapka Colors and MTV India, Cinemax with HBO, MSNBC, VH1, Spike TV and Ebony Life as other examples of networks that CWC has led the efforts to secure broadcast rights agreements for the region."
Well known for its high-quality and innovative content, Bravo focuses on the passion points of food, fashion, beauty, design, digital and pop culture. The network's diversified slate includes its first scripted series "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce," scripted comedy "Odd Mom Out," and unscripted favorites such as Emmy award-winning "Top Chef," "Vanderpump Rules," "Below Deck," "Thicker Than Water" and the popular "Million Dollar Listing" and "The Real Housewives" franchises as well as the only live late-night talk show, "Watch What Happens Live."
"Bravo's compelling programming is very much in line with Flow's vision to transform the viewing experience with superior content," said Reid. "We are glad to be the first operator in the Caribbean to add Bravo to our lineup, and to offer the network to all of our customers, including those with the basic package."
