Could we be seeing Oprah’s pay TV channel OWN – The Oprah Winfrey Network – in Australia soon?
Foxtel are reportedly in discussions with Oprah to launch the channel on its platform. Oprah has indicated she would like to see the channel air in as many countries as possible.
It launches this week in Canada, after premiering January 1 in the US. OWN is a joint venture between Oprah’s multimedia company Harpo Productions and Discovery Communications.
Details of where OWN would fit into Foxtel’s packaging as well as any time frame on negotiations are not yet known.
