Scripps Networks International has launched Food Network and Travel Channel on Croatia’s second largest TV platform.

The lifestyle channels are available on Vipnet, which operates the brands VipTV and, and delivers content via cable, satellite, IPTV and OTT services.

Food Network’s programming includes Barefoot Contessa, Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives (pictured above), Charly’s Cake Angels and Reza’s African Kitchen. The channel will be fully localized next year.

Travel has broadcast in the Croatian market since 2006 and is already fully localized. Its programming includes World’s Greatest Motorcycle Rides, Bizarre Foods America, Luxury Uncovered and International House Hunters.  

Both networks air a mix of acquired and original programming. Fine Living, another Scripps-owned lifestyle channel, has broadcast in the market since 2010 and is available on four platforms.

Earlier this year, the company launched Food Network in Turkey and announced plans to expand Fine Living’s presence in the Middle East at the beginning of next year.
