The Caribbean/West Indian community accounts for about 12% of the overall population, in particular in metropolitan areas in the South East and Northern England, and is one of the longest settled communities in the UK. Despite the high number offirst,second and third generation West Indians who call the UK home, there is still a distinct lack of quality TV programming from the Caribbean, unlike programming on offer for African and Asian communities.
CaribBe TV will broadcast the best of the region’s news, sports, current affairs and special events; comedy, family, music & entertainment, as well as Caribbean cooking, cultural, educational, fashion, lifestyle and travel programmes. Aimed at both the Caribbean/West Indian Diaspora in the UK and any other residents who appreciate Caribbean culture and aspire for a Caribbean lifestyle, CaribBe TV offers unrestricted access to subscribers for authentic viewing originating from the region.
Jamaican entrepreneur and former Miss Jamaica Universe, April Jackson is ambassador and host of CaribBe TV. “April epitomises the essence of CaribBE TV” says Jo Spalburg, managing director of Caribbean Media Partners. “She is a role model who has successfully developed her talents and businesses, both in the Caribbean and the UK, by staying true to her heritage. April is bridging the gap between the Caribbean and the UK, much in the same way as CaribBe TV, and is therefore a perfect brand ambassador.”
