AMC Networks International has struck a deal with French telecom giant Orange to launch Sundance Channel Global on Orange TV in France.
The network, which airs indie films, documentaries and drama series, became available on October 8 as a 24/7 linear TV channel via Orange’s Cinema and Series package.
The channel was already available in France via Virgin Mobile, SFR, Numericable, Free and Bouygues.
Launched in 1996 by the Sundance Film Festival, Sundance Channel showcases independent features and docs, though it has added more unscripted content into its programming mix in recent years. In 2014, the U.S. version of the channel rebranded as Sundance TV.
