Singapore – 16 November 2021 – TechStorm, Asia’s largest and fastest-growing 24/7 Esports, gaming and tech media distribution platform has unveiled their exciting premiere line-up.
Come 6 December, internationally acclaimed British anthology series Black Mirror will premiere on TechStorm as a First on TV title in Asia since its debut as a top-rated streaming title. Subtitles will be available in multiple languages, namely Bahasa Indonesia, Thai, Traditional Chinese and more, a nod to the network’s expanded presence across the region.
Black Mirror is a British sci-fi anthology series exploring a twisted, high-tech multiverse where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide. It has won the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie for three years in a row thanks to the episodes like “San Junipero” and “USS Callister”, in addition to more awards from British Academy Film and Television Arts awards (BAFTA), creating an enduring ripple effect in terms of audience demand in non-Western markets. In Thailand alone, the series ranks at the 95.8th percentile in the Drama genre, proof of a higher demand compared to 95.8% of all drama titles in the country in 2021, according to leading global audience demand analytics company Parrot Analytics.
“As a strong proponent of technology and a huge personal fan of this series for some time, I am super stoked for TechStorm to be the media platform in Asia to bring to our digitally-obsessed, tech-loving audience, all five seasons of Black Mirror. We have demonstrated category leadership by being the first to bring this globally acclaimed dystopian series of how a world of technology and a digitally connected society could look like. The timing is spot-on at a period where the concept of the metaverse, web 4.0 and virtualisation of interactions are hot topics among TechStorm’s community of Asian fans,” says Debbie Lee, Founder & CEO of TechStorm. “We look forward to delivering more world-class, award-winning, tier-one entertainment content to our rapidly growing fans and audience across Asia.”
This line-up also speaks of timely relevance; while dystopian, Black Mirror had predicted what technology would look like in a post-pandemic landscape. The global pandemic has accelerated the digital economy that is unparalleled, and TechStorm observes this year-end to be the perfect time to mirror on screen the reality we’re living – a high-tech multiverse already dominated by innovation and devices.
Black Mirror S1 will air in all of TechStorm’s 11 pan-Asian markets from 6 December, every Monday at 10pm (Singapore Time). Look out for the Christmas Stunt featuring ‘Black Mirror: White Christmas’ and riveting episodes from Season 1, airing on 25 and 26 December starting Prime Time 10pm (Singapore Time).
