Christina Foley, vice-president of distribution and new business development at AETN UK, said: “Expanding the reach of History in Romania is an important milestone in our continued roll-out of the channel within the market. History’s unique positioning and content makes us a valuable channel to platforms. Romtelecom has recognised this and has embraced History with great enthusiasm. We are very pleased that such a leading player in the market has added our channel to its offer.”
