The Ticker Company is launching five new free ad supported TV channels (FAST) to complement the Ticker News Channel.
Ticker Money covers personal finance and market news, with hosts Chris Judd and Genevieve Day’s new program Ticker Talks Trends, plus a new show called Ticker Talks Growth, hosted by Bae Juice founders Tim O’Sullivan and Liam Gostencnik.
Ticker Chef is a 24/7 channel featuring cooking tips and shows hosted by professional chefs, including Masterchef alumni Phil Conway and Ticker host Mike Loder.
Ticker Active is a 24/7 channel bringing simple do-it-yourself workouts that Ticker viewers can do at home, featuring Ticker’s new personal trainer hosts Sarah Mazza, celebrity trainer Jono Castano and professional footballer Aaron Evans
Ticker Docos brings the best of Ticker’s original documentaries to a new channel, while Ticker Insight focuses on thought leadership.
The Ticker News Channel continues to stream with Ticker’s global syndication partners, including FetchTV, Flash News and TelstraTV in Australia.
The Ticker Company CEO Ahron Young says this is a defining moment for team Ticker.
"Never content with just one channel, we know our viewers are urban professionals making key life choices and looking for content that is designed for them," he said.
“News is always in our DNA, but as we learned more about our audience we found that there’s an opportunity to create one place that delivers news, money, tech and lifestyle - tailored to them. This is Ticker 3.0."
Ticker is launching ten new series over the coming weeks which will air across the FAST channels. They will also be streamed on the Ticker News Channel on weekends.
Ticker has also recently appointed Jason Cadd as chief sales officer, working with brands and businesses to get the message out to a global audience.
Cadd said Ticker is the destination for businesses looking to engage a precise and captivated audience.
"Ticker’s average audience age is 39, so they’re looking for something completely different. They’re living in the city, often working from home, using multiple devices and have no idea what a TV aerial is," he said.
