BBC Worldwide has signed a deal to broadcast a branded block of BBC Earth content on Canal+ 1 in Spain.
The factual content block is available on Canal+ 1 in Spain now.
“I am incredibly proud that audiences in Spain, through Canal+ will now have a dedicated place for our BBC Earth content, featuring territory premieres of some of the best natural history and premium factual content anywhere in the world,” said Tobi de Graaff, executive vice-president, Western Europe, BBC Worldwide.
“It is a key part of our strategy to bring the highest-quality content and the BBC Earth brand to wider audiences across Western Europe and securing these BBC Earth blocks highlights our long-standing partners’ commitment to our programming.”
Miguel Salvat, director of CANAL +, explained that “With this new agreement, we are very proud to be able to access the best titles from the very prestigious BBC Earth brand, which joins our existing range of high quality programming. I’m confident that our viewers will enjoy the experience of watching, at any time, the most recent and best productions in this genre.”
The BBC Earth branded block launched on CANAL + 1, Spain, in June with Sharks, a spectacular two-part documentary series showing the enormous diversity of sharks that inhabit our oceans and seas.
