Shorts TV is to launch in Romania across all Romtelecom platforms, including IPTV, DTH, and cable.

On March 1, Shorts TV will also launch on Wananchi’s Zuku satellite DTH platform in Eastern Africa.

Shorts TV broadcasts 24-hours a day in thematic blocks of short films. On Zuku the channel will be in the original English language, while for Romtelecom it will be subtitled in Romanian.

“The concurrent launch of Shorts TV in Romania and across East Africa is incredibly exciting. We are bringing the channel into Africa with Wananchi as a key partner, just as they are additionally expanding into new markets,” said Shorts TV’s CEO, Carter Pilcher.

“In Romania, our movies are a wonderful fit for Romtelecom and its successful modern digital multi video services.”

Shorts TV is available to over 8 million homes on UPC in the Netherlands, in Belgium on Telenet, on Numericable’s French-language cable systems in France, Belgium and Luxembourg, and in Turkey on TTNet.

Shorts International’s US channel Shorts HD is available to 20 million homes through AT&T and DirectTV.
