Scripps Networks International’s Fine Living will land on the OSN platform throughout the Middle East beginning in the new year.

Fine Living’s distribution partner, Chello Zone, brokered the deal, which sees the channel launching on January 1 on the DTH platform.

The home design, travel, cuisine and personal style programming, featuring personalities including Giada De Laurentiis (pictured above) and Vern Yip, will be offered in English with Arabic subtitles.

“We are very pleased that Fine Living will soon join the already carried Food Network on the OSN platform,” said Jon Sichel, managing director of Scripps EMEA, in a statement. “This new agreement is a direct result of the high standards we hold our channel brands to and the strong global need for quality lifestyle programming.”

“With its outstanding programming that appeals to unique tastes of audiences around the world, Fine Living is an excellent addition to OSN’s diverse programming lineup,” said Nick Thorogood, senior vice president of content and marketing, Scripps EMEA.
