Food Network has launched on UPC Romania and is being distributed in the cable operator’s Maxim package.

This follows the recent launch of the Scripps Networks UK & EMEA channel, along with Food Network HD, on Telekom Romania’s TV services.

The former is available on its DTH platform, while the latter is distributed by its IPTV and cable operations.

Commenting on the latest deal, Phillip Luff, MD, Scripps Networks UK and EMEA, said: “As Scripps Networks UK & EMEA continues to expand its international reach, we are pleased that UPC Romania now carries our full portfolio, providing viewers the choice of a wide range of world class lifestyle content to choose from. Romania is now one of 130 countries across the region receiving all Scripps Networks channels, with more to come”.
