Kasia Kieli, President & Managing Director, Discovery Networks CEEMEA said: “After the successful roll-out of TLC, which is today the #1 real-life entertainment channel for women in many CEEMEA markets, we are now expanding our proposition for female viewers with ID Xtra. We believe the channel provides our distribution partners with truly unique content from the mystery & suspense genre and strengthens our portfolio, making it the best offer in Pay TV today. ID Xtra has already received a very warm welcome from our business partners and I’m sure viewers will feel the same way once the channel is on air in their markets.”
