Nat Geo Music will launch in the Czech Republic and Slovakia at the beginning of next month.

Quoting a Fox representative for the two countries, Medialne adds the flagship channel Nat Geo is also likely to be dubbed from the end of this year.

Nat Geo Wild will meanwhile remain with Czech subtitles and Nat Geo HD in English.

Nat Geo Music is likely to be carried by UPC, and negotiations are apparently also been held with the Romanian owned DTH platform Digi TV

. Fox Life and Fox Crime may also shortly make their debuts in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
