Quebecor Content in Canada is teaming up with National Geographic to offer Quebec audiences a sampling of its documentaries on Videotron’s SVOD service Club illico.

Audiences will be offered a dozen documentaries starting with Eat: The Story of Food, an exploration of different food cultures. Other films in the series include Man V Lion (pictured) and Challenge the Desert and Exploring China: China’s Grand Canal.

These NatGeo documentaries were licensed to Quebecor by Fox Networks Group Content Distribution (FNGCD), the global distributor for both FOX and National Geographic content.

“Quebecor Content is an exciting and progressive multiplatform partner with which to do business and we are delighted to have licensed some of our premium National Geographic content for Club illico,” said Prentiss Fraser, EVP and managing director at FNGCD, said in a statement. “We hope to grow our relationship even further over time and anticipate that our exceptional factual stories will be well received by audiences in Qeébec.”

New documentaries will be added monthly to Club illico, which provides unlimited access to a catalog of movies, television series, children’s programs, documentaries and concerts from the largest Québec and foreign studios. Club illico is the first provider of on-demand content in Canada to make National Geographic documentaries available to subscribers.
