BBC Studios and Greece’s Cosmote TV have agreed on the license of over 250 hours of premium BBC factual content on the latter’s on demand service.
The deal is designed to complement the schedule for the BBC Earth linear channel, which has been available in the market through OTE Group’s pay-TV service Cosmote TV since October 2017.
Commenting on the development, Natasha Hussain, VP and general manager at BBC Studios for the Middle East and Mediterranean said: “I am thrilled to see BBC Studios and Cosmote TV partnership in showcasing premium factual programmes in Greece continue to go from strength to strength. This exciting bundle of shows for Cosmote TV’s on demand service, perfectly complements the shows already available on the popular BBC Earth channel, and now also gives audiences the perfect excuse to binge watch more BBC Earth premium programmes at their leisure.”
Dimitris Michalakis, Cosmote TV executive director, added: “We are happy to announce our new agreement with BBC Studios that will further enhance Cosmote TV’s on demand service with premium BBC Studios factual titles. The BBC brand is highly respected in Greece and I am confident that our subscribers will enjoy this new addition to our rich on demand portfolio”.
