FOXTEL is set to fuel Australia’s growing obsession with observational documentary (‘ob doc’) content with the launch of Real Life, a new home for stories where every moment, emotion, and character is real.
Boasting more than 1,600 hours of content from the heartbreaking to the heartwarming, fans will be able to watch all their favourite series in one place for the first time ever on FOXTEL.
Ranging from policing and paramedics, to pets, parenting and paranormal, as well as clip shows plus daytime court shows, all the best ob doc series will be available on Real Life including First Responders, 24 Hour Baby Hospital, Pet Medics, One Born Every Minute, The Supervet, The Secret Life of 4, 5, 6, and 7 Year Olds, Judge Judy and The People’s Court.
Real Life will also showcase all of the quintessential hit series FOXTEL audiences already love, like Border Security: Australia’s Front Line, Highway Patrol, Police Ten-7, Bondi Rescue and Bondi Vet.
Foxtel Group General Manager of Factual Jim Buchan, said: “Australians have a growing obsession with this content with viewership climbing over the past few years.”
“We’ve never had a dedicated home for series and specials like this so we’re thrilled to offer fans one destination to watch all their favourite ob doc shows.”
“We’re proud of the Real Life slate we’ve built which will see a balanced mix of local, exclusive content like First Responders, The Cruise, Close Calls Caught on Camera, EasyJet Inside the Cockpit, Police Ten 7 and 24 Hour Baby Hospital sitting with iconic shows like Highway Patrol and Judge Judy. I think fans will really love the compelling roster we have on offer.”
Real Life will be available to all customers via the basic tier and will air on channel 121 with all content available On Demand excluding Border Force: Australia.
