A+E in deal with KPN

A+E Networks has launched its Crime + Investigation (CI) channel on KPN’s platform in the Netherlands.

Under the deal with the Dutch telco, CI will be part of KPN’s Pluspakket. The agreement will also see A+E’s History channel move from the Pluspakket to the basic tier.

Adrian Pilkington, Senior Vice President, Distribution and Strategy at A+E Networks UK, said: “We are delighted that we have finalised this key distribution deal in the Netherlands with our platform partners KPN. From 1 July, KPN subscribers will be able to enjoy our world-leading Crime + Investigation channel. HISTORY’s move to KPN’s basic tier, with its prominent EPG position, will expose HISTORY’s fantastic content to a much wider audience base.”
