NBTV, along with the latest channel Spirits Network, is transforming storytelling and direct-to-consumer commerce with its personalized data-driven media and technology experiences.
“Now more than ever, businesses across every industry need a direct to consumer commerce channel that provides consumers with home delivery and streaming entertainment.” - NBTV CEO & Chairman, Nick Buzzell.
Spirits Network was recently launched by NBTV as the world’s first direct to consumer, shoppable channel for beverage alcohol. Viewers get access to hundreds of hours of original premium content like documentaries and mixology classes, along with the option to shop for the spirits they have been watching in real-time with home delivery.
Branded Ventures Managing Partner, Jimmy Frischling adds, “Branded is thrilled to have partnered with Nick Buzzell and the entire NBTV team. NBTV and its Spirits Network represents a real asset to the spirits industry and its ability to connect brands directly with consumers has never been more important and necessary. With Spirits Network, viewers can follow along with world-renowned mixologists and the platform breaks down the barrier of the screen. It immerses the viewer into the full experience as if they were in the same room as the mixologist.”
