AXN continued its thrilling streak in Q1 2015, claiming top spot in English general entertainment primetime ratings collectively in Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines and Taiwan.

As the dominant English GE channel across the region, AXN held 37 percent of the primetime viewing share among 20 competing channels, with ratings that were more than 60 percent higher than the next best rated English GE channel.

Asia’s home of thrilling entertainment posted strong ratings gains on the back of the premieres of popular new and returning scripted series including “CSI: Cyber” and “The Blacklist” Season 2, along with AXN Asia’s latest original series “Asia’s Got Talent”. Quarter one primetime ratings grew in all four markets vs 2014. In particular, AXN enjoyed 50 per cent growth quarter-on-quarter in Singapore, 20 percent in the Philippines, 15 percent in Taiwan, while in Malaysia the channel enjoyed more than double the rating of its closest competitor.

Hui Keng Ang, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia said, “Quality, buzzworthy drama and reality series airing day and date with the U.S remain integral to AXN’s success. Adding to this is our focus on producing exciting localized original productions, and engaging viewers for a truly social television experience. ‘Asia’s Got Talent’, while a ratings success on linear TV, has also inspired an active and colorful fan base across several social platforms.”
After a strong launch in March, “Asia’s Got Talent” has continued to deliver top ratings in Southeast Asia and Taiwan a month into the series.

Billed as the biggest talent competition in the world, “Asia’s Got Talent” features some of the region’s most amazing performing artists competing for the coveted title. The first four episodes showcased many breathtaking performances and incredible characters, and at times hilarious and cringeworthy acts which kept viewers thoroughly entertained each week.
