National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) has extended the distribution of channel Nat Geo People into Central and Eastern Europe.
NGCI’s latest brand will launch in Romania on September 1 through Telekom, with Poland’s Cyfrowy, Poldat and nc+ following on October 1. The deal will also see National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild added to both existing channels, while Poland will additionally receive Fox.
Nat Geo People, which replaced Nat Geo Adventure in 2013, offers intimate and inspiring stories focusing on real people and includes such series as David Rocco’s Dolce Vita, which follows the Canadian chef’s adventures through Italy; 4 Babies A Second, detailing various stories of childbirth; Forbidden Love, documenting unconventional relationships; Banged Up Abroad, exploring stories of people arrested while traveling abroad; and Ladyboys, which charts the connection between UK expats and their “ladyboy” lovers in Thailand.
The move follows on the heels of launches in Denmark, Germany, Italy and Turkey.
