Sundance Channel is launching on Poland’s N satellite service.

The AMC/Sundance Channel Global-owned independent film and documentary network will be available in high definition as part of the platform’s ‘Film Hits’ package and, as part of the deal, subscribers to mobile phone network Orange’s Film Hits tier will also become subscribers to Sundance Channel.

Sundance Channel is already available in Poland through several cable providers such as UPC Polska, which first launched the channel. “Poland continues to be a priority market for the expansion of Sundance Channel across Central and Eastern Europe and we are thrilled that this launch will greatly increase our footprint in the country,” said Bruce Tuchman, president of AMC/Sundance Channel Global, in a statement.

The channel has recently secured carriage deals in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Hungary and Taiwan.
