Senior vice president of sales for Disney-ABC International Television EMEA, Said:
“We’re pleased to be building upon our established relationship with BT Vision, to bring some of the most talked about shows on TV to subscribers. The flexibility of the on-demand technology is ideal for viewers wanting to discover, catch up or revisit with, these must-see series”
