London-based distributor TVF International has acquired independent channel Vintage TV’s in-house productions.

The five-year-old channel, which is available in the UK via Sky, Freeview and Freecast, focuses on music-based content aimed at audiences age 30 and over. The deal covers interview series, music concerts, showcases, intimate sessions and formats featuring musicians such as Sheryl Crow, Joss Stone, Peter Andre and Nile Rodgers.

“Vintage TV is a clever channel built in response to a gap in the market – its original programming is rapidly expanding and it has both international and cross-generational appeal, offering something different to the more generic music video platforms,” said Alice Hamlett, TVF’s director of programming, in a statement.

In related news, the company also inked a distribution development deal with Mountain TV in Korea for the two-part, 4K aerial series Korea From Above. The deal was signed during the MIPCOM market in Cannes, France, earlier this week.
