Joint venture broadcaster A+E Networks UK is expanding its presence in Eastern Europe, with History HD landing on Poland’s N platform and sister channel Crime & Investigation Network launching on pay-TV provider UPC.

History HD offerings include two-hour special WWII Lost Films: the Air War, reality competition series Top Shot, and History of the World in 2 Hours.

Meanwhile Crime & Investigation Network’s catalog includes series Sin & Secrets and The First 48: Missing Persons. More distribution deals are expected to come for both channels across Europe later this year, the company said.

“Extending the reach of History HD and Crime & Investigation Network to new audiences in this market is a continued priority for us,” said Tom Davidson, managing director at A+E Networks UK.

A+E Networks UK is a joint venture between A+E Networks and BSkyB.
