Sundance Channel is heading to Korea and Taiwan, while the network and its sister station WE tv are launching in the Philippines.

In Korea, Sundance Channel will debut on LG Korea, while mobile network Taiwan Mobile has also picked up the network to carry as a mobile VoD service.

In Thailand, WE tv has launched on TrueVisions, which it joins Sundance Channel, which debuted on the platform last year.

In the Philippines, Accion has been named the exclusive sales agent for the two channels, which have since launched on local operators including Cablelink TV for Metro Manila, Asian Vision for the Olangapo and Zambales region, Telmarc for the Taytay and Teresea regions, and Royal Cablevision for the Cabuyao and Calamba regions.

Deals were also done in Latin America, with Sundance Channel set to launch on TV Cable Ecuador.

“These exciting, new distribution agreements reflect the importance of Asia and Latin America as critical regions in our global expansion strategy,” said Bruce Tuchman, president of AMC/Sundance Channel Global. “We also look forward to further supporting the authenticated on demand initiatives of our subscription television partners around the world.”

The deals were all made by AMC/Sundance Channel Global, the international arm of AMC Networks.
