Bakori Davis, VP of Commercial Operations at A+E Networks UK, said: “We are delighted to secure additional distribution with Romtelecom and NextGen for both History HD and CI in Romania. History is the most popular factual channel in Romania and we are thrilled that our growing audience can now enjoy its quality content in HD.”
