Sky Vision has signed a distribution deal with Australia’s Foxtel.

The distribution arm of UK broadcaster Sky will exclusively represent pay-TV broadcaster’s factual, lifestyle and drama programming, though Foxtel will manage distribution in Australia and New Zealand.

Titles joining the Sky Vision catalog include the culinary/lifestyle show Donna Hay: Basics to Brilliance (pictured), a new factual series starring Lawrie Voitier of Aussie Pickers and a series that follows cook Maggie Beers to Japan. The latter two will be available for buyers later in the year.

The agreement marks the first time Foxtel has partnered with a distributor in this way.

The deal was brokered by Sky Vision director of factual and entertainment Barney Shingleton Sky Vision director of drama and comedy Kylie Munnich, Foxtel director of content and movies Ross Crowley and Darren Distefano of Foxtel content sales and distribution.
