AMC/Sundance Channel Global has signed new distribution deals for Sundance Channel in Asia and expanded on demand offerings in Europe.
Sundance Channel comes to Thailand for the first time with pay-TV operator TrueVisions.
Sundance On-Demand will also debut in China on BesTV, Shanghai Media Group’s IPTV platform.
European VOD deals grow with Belgium’s Belgacom and France’s Numericable (the latter includes exclusive VOD rights to Mad Men).
Bruce Tuchman [pictured], President of AMC/Sundance Channel Global, said, “AMC/Sundance Channel Global continues to see great momentum in building a truly global network of channels catering to audiences and markets all over the world. Our first-ever launches in Thailand and China will extend the Sundance brand across these high growth Asian markets. We’ll continue to pursue expansion across linear and on-demand platforms, including TV Everywhere initiatives, to offer audiences wider access to our iconic content on an authenticated basis to reinforce the high value of the pay-TV ecosystem.”
