International broadcaster, Chello Zone, today announced the further global expansion of its portfolio into Norway, with cable operator Canal Digital Kabel TV, part of Telenor, now carrying CBS Reality in partnership with CBS Studios International, Extreme Sports Channel and Outdoor Channel, in addition to Food Network and Fine Living owned by Scripps Networks Interactive.
This launch marks the first time channels from the broadcaster’s portfolio will be available on the platform. All five networks will be available in the optional Digital Basic offer which has a potential reach of up to 500,000 viewers.
The deal is the latest step in the international expansion of the Chello Zone portfolio into the EMEA market, following the launch of the newly rebranded CBS Chello Zone Channels across Europe, Middle East and Africa in December last year.
Louise Cottrell, Chello Zone’s Vice President of Affiliate Sales said: “The expansion of the Chello Zone portfolio into Norway reflects the growing popularity of our family of channels and our dedication to reaching new audiences around the world. Through a diverse offering of channels, our programming offers a wide variety of entertainment for all the family. We are thrilled that even more viewers in Europe will now be able to enjoy our thematic channels bringing the best in classic and iconic content, original programming and entertaining show to our audiences.”
