History Channel heads to Quebec with Historia
| 22 October 2014
Corus Media and A+E Networks have reached an agreement to bring content and branding from the History Channel to Historia in Quebec.
Slated to roll out this winter, Historia will launch several series from the History catalogue, such as Mountain Men, Appalachian Outlaws, Down East Dickering and No Man's Land. Historia already broadcasts a number of History's global hit franchises such as Pawn Stars, American Pickers, American Restoration and Counting Cars, all of which rank among the channel's top ten most-watched shows. Historia will also incorporate the iconic gold History 'H' into its logo.
"We're delighted to partner with one of the biggest players in the television business," said Mario Cecchini, president at Corus Media. "This deal will enrich our broadcasting package with shows produced by a world-renowned brand."
