Kanal D Drama offers free content
Beyond the Clouds debuted in Turkey in 2009
Turkish drama channel Kanal D Drama is offering free on-demand content in the US in a bid to encourage viewers to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
A joint-venture between Turkey’s Kanal D International and Canal+ subsidiary Thema America, Kanal D Drama launched in the US as part of Comcast’s Xfinity Latino package last year as a Spanish-language channel dedicated to Turkish drama. It is also available across Latin America.
In a move to encourage people to stay at home during the Covid-19 crisis, Thema America and Comcast have agreed to offer Kanal D Drama’s dubbed content, such as 2009 series Beyond The Clouds, for free on-demand to all Xfinity TV subscribers ¬– not just to those who subscribe to the Latino package. It will be available until May 3.
“In the midst of the global health crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we want to reaffirm our commitment to keep our audience company while they are housebound, with the most varied library of Turkish blockbusters,” said Francheska León de la Barra, marketing director for Kanal D Drama in the US and Lat Am.
