Just recently, October 6, BIO™ Channel rebrand to FYI™, a contemporary lifestyle network reflecting how people live their lives today, across Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Mongolia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Pacific Islands, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan. This was announced by Alan Hodges, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, A+E Networks.

For your inspiration, for your innovation or for your imagination, FYI will be a personalized experience for each viewer. The network embraces the way audiences really live their lives – proudly-hyphenated and not constrained by one passion or interest. Never an instruction manual and always an inspiration engine, FYI offers viewers a more adventurous, personalized and non-prescriptive approach to programming with a range of stories that reflect how people actually live their lives today, not defined by just one passion or interest. 

FYI’s mission is to inspire personal creativity that emphasizes improvised living, while reflecting our authentic slate of programming. And with its rich mix of inspirational content, the new channel’s Asian premiere is sure to bring its viewers a season of quality entertainment. ~Michele Schofield, Senior VP, Programming & Marketing at A+E Networks Asia. 

FYI will feature over 300 hours of original content each year across four programming genres-taste, space, look, and journey. FYI will include locally-commissioned productions and local acquisitions.

By rifling through their clothes and asking some blunt questions we get to the root of their fashion malaise, before whisking them away for a shopping trip around New York.
