BT Vision has signed a contract with Universal Networks International, the international channels division of NBCUniversal. This will see leading channel brands, Universal Channel, Syfy and E! Entertainment added to its linear line-up, which will launch in the coming weeks.
The three channels will be streamed live and early in 2013, and BT Vision customers will also be able to watch specific programmes on-demand.
Marc Watson, BT’s chief executive of TV, said: “Universal Channel, Syfy and E! make a fantastic contribution to our channels offering at launch. They offer the best quality drama, hit supernatural thrillers and popular entertainment shows that viewers love.”
