KIX is a pay television entertainment channel in Asia owned by Celestial Tiger Entertainment. The channel is broadcast in Greater China and Southeast Asia as 24/7 action entertainment tailored for Asian audiences[1] and targeted toward the male 18 to 45 demographic.[2] The channel airs a combination of Asian content (notably Korean shows) with Western programs and attracts a core target audience of international viewers skewed toward male viewers.[3][4]

Programming[edit]

The network has acquired licenses to mixed martial arts tournaments and international content including Bellator MMA, Mad Dogs, Top Gear Korea, Ten and Quiz From God.[5] In 2012, KIX secured first and exclusive rights to bring the Lingerie Football League, "America’s fastest growing sports league," to Asia.[5] KIX and LFL toured Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Hong Kong with players Liz Gorman, Angela Rypien and Natalie Jahnke to promote the multi-year broadcast partnership and launch of LFL on KIX.[6] In 2013, KIX promoted the second season of Top Gear Korea with Korean TV actor and celebrity racer Yeon Jung-Hoon at media events in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Hong Kong.[7]

Series and Shows[edit]

Programming generally features action fashioned around cars, combat sports, women, and explosive drama; this is anchored by four programming pillars: combat sports, action reality, action series and action movies.
