Food Network has launched on UPC Romania, thanks to a recent deal between the channel’s owner Scripps Networks UK and EMEA and Liberty Global.

Food Network is now available on channel 59 as part of UPC Romania’s ‘Maxim’ package, with the channel to air new series such as Trisha’s Southern Kitchen and Australian Food Adventures.

“As Scripps Networks UK and EMEA continues to expand its international reach, we are pleased that UPC Romania now carries our full portfolio, providing viewers the choice of a wide range of world class lifestyle content to choose from,” said Phillip Luff, Managing Director, Scripps Networks UK & EMEA.

“Romania is now one of 130 countries across the region receiving all Scripps Networks channels, with more to come.”

The deal follows the recent launch of Food Network and Food Network HD on direct-to-home satellite platform Telekom Romania.
