DreamWorks Channel is television network that is owned & operated by DreamWorks Animation International TV.

Singapore-based broadcaster HBO Asia was contracted to handle marketing, sales and technical services for the channel.[1] Given that its programming is already involved in other arrangements in the US with Netflix and other, a US channel is not likely.[2]


DreamWorks Animation announced on December 9, 2014 plans to launch its own TV channel starting in Asia rolling out over 19 countries in the second half of 2015.[1] DreamWorks Channel launched on August 1, 2015 in Thailand. The channel represents DWA's first foray into operating its own television channel in any part of the world as a result of a joint venture through CTH.[3]


The content on the channel mainly consists of series produced by DreamWorks Animation SKG and DreamWorks Classics library.[1] DWA's movies were not planned to air on the channel.[2]
