The new RiK: IFC Media and Your Family Entertainment AG relaunch first Slovak language Family TV Channel RiK
RiK the Raven, born in Ravensburg, Germany, is not only an iconic animated series but also the broadcaster's hilarious mascot for the family of TV networks worldwide. The relaunch of RiK in Slovakia represents the next step for the territorial expansion of channels after Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the launch of RiC International in cooperation with A1 Telekom (Austria) in 2019.
RiK Slovakia continues the channel's tradition of offering highly entertaining content for children and families. It encompasses award-winning and educational shows in Slovak language, such as cult animation masterpieces "Country Mouse and City Mouse", "Timothy Goes to School", and "Marvin the Tap Dancing Horse" for younger kids. The line-up also includes international blockbuster series like "Dragon Hunters" or "Rescue Heroes" and popular live-action classics like "The Adventures of Family Robinson".
RiK's launch in Slovakia comes at the right time to support kids in the current pandemic as lockdowns and social distancing weigh on children in particular. RiK's programmes are designed to be entertaining and fun while promoting social values and avoiding violence. Parents can thus rely on RiK to provide the right kind of entertainment for their loved ones in these difficult times. YFE's mission is to promote social values around the world through its programmes, a fact that was recently confirmed by Asset Impact, a German rating agency for companies compliant with environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
"We are very excited about the partnership with YFE and the opportunity to return to Slovak families with our first Slovak language TV channel for kids. We firmly believe that RiK will enrich the TV-bouquets of all operators in Slovakia and fill a gap in the market with its strong focus on education, entertainment and promotion of social values," says Jozef Pipek, CEO of IFC Media.
Bernd Wendeln, COO and Board Member of YFE, is delighted to announce the RiK channel launch: "Our Group strives to expand internationally by teaming up with great partners. We are thus excited to join forces with IFC Media and are looking forward to a long-term partnership. RiK comes at the exact right moment for children and families in Slovakia. The launch is yet another excellent example of YFE's ability to expand and build its business internationally, even in difficult times."
