Dori extends Hot Israeli deal

Telenovela producer and distributor Dori Media has extended an agreement with Israeli cabler Hot to run its premium movie channels. Dori subsidiary Dori Media Spike inked the deal with Hot, which it said will be worth between US$45m (€35m) and US$48m over the three-years of the deal, which runs until 2014.

The new deal follows on from an earlier three-year agreement announced in mid-2007. At that time Dori said that deal was worth between US$52.5m and US$67.5m over three years.
