Love Nature, and Sky Studios, plans to expand its five-year content deal in support of Sky Nature, which originally launched in 2020 in the UK.  “The expansion of our partnership with Sky TV is an important milestone in Love Nature’s history, bringing our universally loved wildlife and nature stories to millions of new fans in Italy and Germany,” said Carlyn Staudt, Global General Manager, Love Nature. 

The expansion will bring a large catalog containing 670 hours of original content shot in 4K by 2025 to Sky Italia and Sky Deutschland customers, including Sean Bean-narrated blue chip 60-minute special, "Osprey: Sea Raptor," the six-part  "Malawi Wildlife Rescue," the 12-part "Battle of the Alphas" and other key original titles now in production. The titles are all set to be localized in German and Italian.

With its wildlife and nature brand with linear and streaming channels available in over 135 countries, the channel has become the home of Love nature's most favorable titles, which intend to help viewers appreicate the beauty of nature. “Not only does this expanded deal highlight the quality of our stunning series and documentaries, it validates Love Nature’s decision to invest in 4K over seven years ago, while navigating through all the uncharted territory that came with being one of the first to market in the natural history space,” Staudt said. 

Sky has an ongoing task of net zero carbon by 2030 across its entire value chain. As Principal Partner Media Partner to the UN’s climate change summit, COP26, the company is committed to using its voice, content  and channels to raise awareness of the climate crisis. “We launched Sky Nature just one year ago and it has already delivered record breaking audiences as the biggest natural channel in the UK,” Zai Bennett, MD Content Sky UK & Ireland said. “The natural world is increasingly important to our customers, and we recognise this interest is shared by customers in other markets, including Germany and Italy.”
