Canadian media and broadcasting company Corus Entertainment has sent home property titles Buying the View and Masters of Flip (pictured) into multiple international territories.

Real estate series Buying the View (26 x 30 minutes), in which house hunters purchase luxury properties with a view, has been acquired by Australia’s Nine Network and A+E Networks Asia.

The Our House Media- and W Network-made series, which is now available in 35 territories worldwide, was previously picked up by CS MediaGroup’s Dove Channel in Italy.

Meanwhile, the Canadian entertainment company has sent the first season of home renovation series Masters of Flip (12 x 60 minutes) to Norway’s Discovery Channel, as well as a raft of Asian territories via Life Inspired, including Singapore, Hong Kong/Macau, Taiwan, Indonesia and Malaysia/Brunei.

The deal follows sales in the U.S. to Scripps Networks Interactive, and in Australia to Nine Entertainment, which has also acquired a second season of the Rhino Content- and W Network-made series.

Corus’ slate of unscripted productions currently includes Cheer Squad, My Baby’s Having a Baby and Worst to First.
