AETN says Romanian cable operators Telemach and DCS are now carrying its History factual channel.

History is fully localised for Romanian viewers.

The channel offers programmes that cover a diverse variety of historical genres ranging from ancient to contemporary history, technology to natural history, as well as military history, science, archaeology and pop culture.

Christina Foley, Commercial Director, AETN UK, said “We are delighted that History’s Romanian reach continues to grow and we look forward to working closely with our partners to build our channel profile amongst their subscribers.”

Now available in over 145 countries in more than 200 million TV households, History is the only international television network devoted exclusively to historical programming.

The network is the leading destination for revealing, award-winning, original programmes that connect history with viewers across multiple platforms.

History says it had its best year ever in 2009 in the US, finishing as the #5 ad-supported network in primetime for men aged 25-54 and coming in at #9 among all ad-supported cable networks in its key demographic of Adults for A25-54, breaking into the top 10 for the first time.

Additionally, History was the #5 ad-supported network in primetime for men 25-54.

Internationally, 2009 was also a strong year for the network, with History ending the year as the #1 factual brand in markets like Spain, Italy and Mexico, and the #2 or 3 factual brand in all markets.

History was first launched by AETN in January 1995 in the United States.
