Broadcaster Chello Zone is launching kids channel JimJam and outdoor activity network Outdoor Channel in Africa.

The Liberty Global-owned company has signed a deal with DTH platform ZAP for carriage in Angola and Mozambique. ZAP already carries Chello’s Extreme Sports Channel, Fine Living and Food Network channels.

Louise Cottrell, vice-president affiliate sales for Chello Zone, said: “We are thrilled to extend our relationship with ZAP. The launch of two of our best loved channels, Outdoor Channel and JimJam, certainly marks this progression and we’re sure the audiences in Angola and Mozambique will embrace them.”
