Scripps Networks UK & EMEA, a division of engaging lifestyle content, has announced that Travel Channel, the global travel broadcaster, is now available on UPC in Austria. Travel Channel is the first network to launch on a Liberty Global platform since the two companies agreed to a pan-European distribution deal last October.
Jon Sichel, Managing Director, Scripps Networks UK & EMEA said: “It’s rewarding to see our first platform launch on UPC as a result of our partnership with Liberty Global. Travel Channel will bring subscribers closer to their favourite lifestyle programming and deliver the bold characters, authentic storytelling and entertainment that audiences love most about our world-class content.”
As part of the original deal signed last year, Scripps Networks granted rights to Liberty Global to allow its content to be delivered across multiple platforms including cable, catch-up, SVoD and mobile. Liberty Global has cable distribution throughout Europe in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom as well as DTH services in five Central and Eastern European countries.
