E! is an Australian pay television channel, owned by Universal Networks International. Much like its American counterpart it features entertainment-related programming, reality television and Hollywood news. It is available through the Foxtel, Austar and FetchTV in Australia and Sky Network Television in New Zealand.[1] In 2014, it became available on Australian streaming service Foxtel Play.[2]

History[edit]

E! was relaunched in 2012, shortly after the American version of E! did the same rebrand, which included a revised logo. Kim Kardashian visited Australia to promote the rebranding.[3]

The channel issued a casting call for journalists to become the face of E! Australia, and report on local entertainment news.[4] The contest was won by Ksenija Lukich.[5]

On the Foxtel platform, E! moved from channel 121 to channel 125.[6]

Programming[edit]

Ksenija Lukich, the winner of E! Host Australia Search.
