ZUUS Media, the network operating ZUUS, has acquired The Country Network (TCN) and has re-branded it to ZUUS Country. The new ZUUS Country network will continue to be programmed and operated from the former TCN headquarters in Nashville.
ZUUS Country will be available in over 40 major television markets nationwide and features the same standard of programming, but with a new name and look. The newly renamed television channel will also combine with the ZUUS Country digital channels on the ZUUS digital network, providing fans even more opportunities to discover and rediscover a variety of music thru ZUUS multi-genre programming.
“We are extremely excited to welcome ZUUS Country to the ZUUS Media family,” said ZUUS CEO Steve Goldstein. “Under the ZUUS Media umbrella, the newly re-branded network will not only add a significant amount of content and programming to our country platform, it will also benefit by being able to leverage our existing seamless TV-Web-Mobile exposure, label and artist partnerships, and integrated digital and social platforms all within and part of the ZUUS Media network.”
As part of ZUUS Media’s multi-platform distribution, the new ZUUS Country will offer digital video streaming online via the ZUUS Mobile app on Apple and Android devices, and will also be viewable via a new ZUUS Facebook app. ZUUS Country will feature programming from TCN, while incorporating new programs.
New ZUUS Country programs will include Inside Tracks, which takes a look at artists on the rise, including their influences, inspirations, hometown interviews and tours. Each episode will showcase music videos and an acoustic performance by the featured artist. In Breaking Out, an existing program, music experts bring fans more new talent on the verge of fame.
