The BBC has secured distribution deals for its international channels in Laos and Greece.
A tie-up between BBC Worldwide Asia and Laosat DTH will see BBC World News, BBC Earth and CBeebies available in Laos for the first time.
“The pay TV market is set for high growth in the next few years. With our partnership with Laosat DTH, we are very pleased to be part of that growth, bringing our genre-defining content to viewers there,” said Myleeta Aga, SVP, South and South East Asia, BBC Worldwide.
BBC Earth is also coming to Greece for the first time after the BBC struck a deal with OTE Group’s Pay-TV service, Cosmote TV.
Natasha Hussain, General Manager and Vice President of Middle East and Mediterranean at BBC Worldwide commented: “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.
