Cable and Wireless Launches TNT Series, the Network Known as a Source of the "Binge Watching Phenomenon"

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - Coming on the heels of the recent agreement reached with Bravo, Flow, the consumer brand of Cable and Wireless Communications (C&W) has partnered with the Turner Network Television Series (TNT Series) to bring even more compelling content to the Caribbean region. TNT, with 34 million customers worldwide, boasts some of the best-ranked and most iconic series, and will now be part of the Flow lineup across the Caribbean. 

TNT Series, an American television network that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) division of Time Warner, is known for its popular drama series and feature films and has broken viewership records in the U.S.

"We are pleased to announce yet another agreement with a worldwide leader in video content," said John Reid, C&W's Consumer Group President. "TNT Series offers Flow customers their familiar, favorite shows and movies from the past, and also introduces some of the most compelling content being produced today," said Reid. "In many cases some of TNT's best-ranked shows will be an entirely new experience for our customers, which we are confident will prove to be hugely popular." TNT Series will be available to all of Flow's video customers, through their basic television service.

Capitalizing on today's "binge watching phenomenon," where demand for new and continuous content is higher than ever before, TNT Series has introduced a number of new hit series, such as Continuum, El Dandy, The Astronauts Wives Club, Major Crimes, and Suits, while ensuring that classics like CSI, Law and Order, Colony and The Last Ship remain a part of the channel's lineup.
