1 November, 2023 - A+E Networks EMEA, a media company with a portfolio of factual entertainment channels, has appointed Zigt Media as their Media Buying agency in the Netherlands.
Zigt Media will be responsible for all media buying of A+E Networks EMEA’s localised channels, The HISTORY® Channel and Crime+Investigation™.
Marianna Kritikos, Regional Director for Benelux & Nordics said: “After searching for the best partner, we are excited to have Zigt on board. Their experience and depth of knowledge of the Dutch media buying market is exceptional, and we are looking forward to our new collaboration.”
Rogier Bruggeman from ZIGT said: “We are thrilled to welcome A+E Networks to ZIGT. A great company with brands and channels that really deserve to get more into the spotlight. We are looking forward to growing the fanbase of the documentaries and formats.”
The HISTORY Channel is one of the most recognised and valued international TV brands that is even more relevant today than ever. The HISTORY Channel informs and entertains millions of people through its combination of award-winning documentaries and fast-paced, character-led contemporary formats. It tells the important stories about our past that can inform how we think about our present and our future clearly demonstrating that HISTORY is alive.
The HISTORY Channel’s programming line up in The Netherlands for the remainder of 2023 promises the launch of some exciting new content.
Viking Quest introduces a team of adventurers who relive the Viking life and the harsh realities of what it entailed. Starting in Norway, this series follows the 5-year project from conception to their first landing in Canada, reacting to the journey to the new world, Tuesdays at 21:25.
Dutch Director Roel Reine will be returning to The HISTORY Channel this November with his incredible feature-length Ancient Empires devoted to the titans of Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, and Julius Caesar, from 13 November.
Over the last 12 years in the Netherlands, Crime+Investigation has taken investigators into the dark, complex and compelling world of real crime that deserves your attention, all while providing unprecedented and exclusive access to experts, survivors, and perpetrators. A global brand, we ask what makes people commit their crimes, what actually happened and what impact it has.
