Flow TV customers across the Caribbean are in for a treat as Cable & Wireless Communications, operator of the Flow brand in the Caribbean, announced the addition of a new channel – TV One to its line-up beginning Feb. 15, the company says.
TV One is the cable home of the blockbuster drama Empire. Best known for Unsung, its five-time NAACP Image Award-winning series, TV One is a trusted storyteller and voice of black culture. The channel will be exclusive to Flow in the majority of its markets, and on a non-exclusive basis in The Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Turks and Caicos Islands.

Customers will enjoy signature series like Unsung and Unsung Hollywood; popular reality series like Rickey Smiley For Real; and highly-rated true crime series Fatal Attraction, For My Man and ATL Homicide.
