All the channel’s landmark programming will be subtitled into the local language and later in the year BBC Earth will air the exclusive territory premiere of Blue Planet II, the highly anticipated follow up to Blue Planet.
Commenting on the launch, Natasha Hussain, general manager and VP of Middle East and Mediterranean at BBC Worldwide, said: “In an ever changing and competitive media landscape it is increasingly important to have world-class brands and content that are also able to cut through and resonate with audiences locally. The BBC is uniquely positioned as the world leader in natural history and factual film making, with an unparalleled heritage of creating global phenomena like Planet Earth II and Blue Planet. This latest partnership with Cosmote TV means viewers in Greece will be part of a growing family of audiences globally able to access market leading British, bold, creative content through BBC Earth”.
Dimitris Michalakis, Cosmote TV executive director, added: “BBC’s top documentary channel, BBC Earth, premieres for the first time in Greece on Cosmote TV, offering Greek audiences magnificent TV productions, like the multi-award winning Blue Planet and Blue Planet II. In the upcoming period, new exciting content additions will come to our channels’ line-up for Cosmote TV subscribers.”
