Chello Zone has signed agreements with the Dutch telco KPN and cable operator Caiway to air the Italian language channel Mediaset Italia.
The deals are significant in that it marks the first time the channel, which airs a mix of programming from Canal 5, Italia 1 and Rete 4, has been made available in the Netherlands.
Furthermore, Mediaset Italia has become the only Italian channel distributed by both platforms.
Mediaset Italia will be available to KPN’s 652,000 IPTV subscribers and offered as part of its basic package.
It will also initially be offered to around 27,000 Caiway EBT subscribers who receive the Chello Zone channels Extreme Sports Channel, Fine Living, Food Network and JimJam.
