Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The Dutch broadcaster UPC is launching a new video on demand service following an agreement with Universal Networks International, that will include content from the two popular US channels 13th Street and the SyFy channel.

Content will include ‘Dexter’, ‘Sleeper Cell’, ‘The Wire’ and ‘Flashpoint’ from 13th Street, and ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’, ‘Sanctuary’, ‘Primeval’ and ‘Dr Who’ from the SyFy channel.

The channel has an agreement with Ziggo, and the company is in negotiation with other content providers too.

This will expand the content available to basic digital subscribers from the north eastern part of Europe.

According to John Burnett, director of Universal Networks International Benelux, the broadcaster is pleased to be able to provide this type of content to its customers and is looking to expand the offerings in the future.
