Magine has added Nautical Channel to its online schedule in Sweden and its international platforms in Spain and Germany. The Nordic service continues to increase its OTT catalogue in Sweden, while rolling out the beta version in other countries ahead of its official launch.

"We already have a wide offer of lifestyle channels and we know that they are very popular among our users. We are very happy to welcome Nautical Channel to our line-up, as it's a unique channel targeting everyone interested in water sports," said Alexander Jamale, Magine's country manager in Sweden.

Nautical Channel is the only international TV channel dedicated to nautical sports and lifestyle, and is available to more than 20 million pay-TV subscribers in 42 countries. The channel shows world-class action from the nautical world and covers some of the best competitions in sailing, boat racing, surfing, canoeing and diving.

In Sweden it will be part of a 40-channel schedule, while in Spain it will become channel number 14 in an increasing line-up. After over five months slowly establishing itself in the Spanish online TV market, the Swedish platform announced last month that it was ready to launch its official version before the end of the year.
