Fashionistas all over Asia can now receive the Fashion Television channel as a linear satellite channel. Fashion Television has been delivering fashion content from all over the world to audiences throughout Asia since 1999 as a content block, but the launch of a dedicated channel allows a population in excess of one billion to access its programming 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

London-based owner Fashion Television International chose Asiasat 7 operated by Hong-Kong based Asiasat Satellite Telecommunications Co. at orbital position 105.5 East with a footprint reaching from Saudi Arabia in the northwest to New Zealand in the southeast.

"Fashion Television is excited about its launch as a dedicated channel in a region in which we know we already have many fans," says Ralph Siebenaler, who spearheads the international expansion of Fashion Television as the new CEO of Fashion Television's international headquarters, where all activities in Europe and Asia are coordinated under a new management team.

"Asia has become the growth engine for the fashion industry, with most fashion brands booking record revenue quarter after record revenue quarter, while the rest of the world is lagging," said Siebenaler.
