Distributor Zodiak Rights has inked a three-year volume deal with Australian pay-TV network Foxtel.

The deal extends a previous volume deal between Zodiak Rights and the now-defunct XYZnetworks, which merged with Foxtel in 2012. The new deal covers all Foxtel channels, including History, A&E, Crime Investigation Network and The LifeStyle Channel.

“Our previous volume deal worked extremely well and it makes perfect sense to continue and extend the deal across the breadth of Foxtel’s entertainment, lifestyle and factual channels which are a natural fit for many Zodiak titles,” said Alex Le Merle, VP of sales for Zodiak Rights, in a statement.

Foxtel has already picked up more than 400 hours of programming from the Zodiak catalog, including the series Embarrassing Bodies, Hardcore Pawn (pictured) and Lizard Lick Towing and the one-hour human interest and history documentaries Burning Down Paris, How the Devil Got his Horns and WWI Top Gun: Revealed.
