Founded in 2008, Munich-based Autentic is a joint venture between Patrick Hörl and Jan Mojto’s Beta Film. Autentic focuses on high-quality documentaries and factual series for the German and international market. The company covers the entire value chain of the factual genre, from development, production, co-financing and distribution to operation of its own channels and VOD services.
Established over 60 years ago as a subsidiary of NDR, OneGate belongs to the Studio Hamburg Group, one of the leading production houses in Germany.
The companies have joined forces to launch the new FAST Channel Adventure Earth, offering high-quality nature and wildlife documentaries.
“Captivating stories about sustainability and biodiversity in nature and wildlife are more popular than ever before. Viewers have never been more aware of how many wonders and surprises our vulnerable planet has to offer. Autentic has always been first and foremost about top-notch and relevant content, so partnering with OneGate Media to launch Adventure Earth is only a logical step for us,” said Patrick Hörl, Managing Director, Autentic.
Tania Reichert-Facilides, Managing Director, OneGate Media, added: “We welcome Adventure Earth to our channel family and are delighted to be working with Patrick and his team at Autentic, who have years of experience in the channel business and in marketing pay-TV channels. We bring our strong VOD expertise to the collaboration. We successfully operate more than 30 national and international channels from OneGate Media, and this FAST channel is the successful start of our new cooperation.”
