History HD launches in Greece

History HD is to launch in Greece for the first time following a deal between A+E Networks UK and Greek pay TV operator OTE TV.

The channel will be available via satellite and IPTV.

Tom Davidson, managing director at A+E Networks UK, said: “Greece is a country with a rich and fascinating history so there is no better place to launch our high definition History channel. Extending the reach of History to new audiences in Europe is a continuing priority for us and we believe that our channel adds tremendous value to our affiliates’ offering.”
