The factual entertainment label
AUTENTIC offers business-to-business services, founded on a thorough understanding of both the editorial and economic needs of the industry. The company focuses its efforts on three particular categories:
Documentaries with a broad appeal for a wide audience, fit for primetime scheduling on both terrestrial and pay broadcast networks; factual series with long running potential, supporting the brand position of linear channels, which will be scheduled prominently on regular or horizontal programming slots; and special interest films, including feature length productions, that appeal to well defined audiences, often best reached through new ways of content distribution.
AUTENTIC owns and operates several subscription-based linear channels. Together with Spiegel TV in Germany, AUTENTIC operates the two channels SPIEGEL GESCHICHTE, broadcasted on Sky Deutschland and SPIEGEL TV WISSEN, distributed via all relevant cable- and IPTV-Provider in Germany and Swisscom.
From 2010 till 2013 AUTENTIC operated the three channels: Top Crime, Top Explore and Top History on On Digital Media´s pay tv platform “TopTV” in South Africa.
In 2013 AUTENTIC launched together with ZDF Enterprises the English language pay-tv channel SPARK, distributed in Africa and Europe.
