Mongol TV makes a spate of content acquisitions

MUMBAI: Mongol TV has made a spate of content acquisitions from the recent Asia TV Forum.

According to Mongol TV chief executive officer Nomin Chinbat, the programme acquisitions are mainly drama renewals and a new acquisition from the UK.

From ITV, Mongol TV acquired Mr. Selfridge while Downton Abbey came from distributor NBC.

The Mongolian broadcaster also renewed popular American primetime dramas The Good Wife, Hawaii Five-O from CBS, NBC’s The Blacklist and ABC’s Scandal.

Known for live events broadcasting, Mongol TV will air the 87th Academy Awards live on 22 February 2015, which it acquired from Disney. This is the second year the broadcaster will air the show live.

“Mongol TV has been consistently top in ratings in Mongolia by providing our audiences with the best quality programming from around the world. We are fortunate that CBS, ITV, NBC, Fox , Disney and Sony provide us with their best shows for our territory and appreciate our ongoing partnerships with them,” said Chinbat.
