History HD expands Poland presence with ‘n’ deal

History HD is to expand its distribution across Poland after A+E Networks inked a deal with pay TV platform ‘n’.

A+E Networks UK, the joint venture between A+E Networks and BSkyB, struck the deal with the ITI Neovision-owned operator. The channel will launch this summer and will mean ‘n’ subscribers will be able to watch series including No County for Old Men and WWII Lost Films: The Air War in high definition.

Separately, the company has inked a deal with pay TV operator UPC for its Crime and Investigation Network in Poland. This will mean UPC customers will be able to watch series including Sin & Secrets and The Hillside Strangler.

Tom Davidson, managing director at A+E Networks UK, said: “We are delighted to secure new distribution deals for our channels in Poland. Extending the reach of History HD and Crime & Investigation Network to new audiences in this market is a continued priority for us. We believe that our channels can add tremendous value to our affiliates’ offering.”

The company added that it expected to close more distribution deals for both channels across Europe this year.
