Blue Ridge Communications will make Shalom TV available to its 180,000 households in northeastern Pennsylvania under a carriage deal announced Friday.

Stand-alone premium service Shalom TV is a digital-cable network focused on Jewish culture.

Blue Ridge said it expects to add content from Shalom to its video-on-demand lineup later this year.

“Shalom TV helps us to deliver enlightening and relevant programming to an important but underserved audience in our communities,” Blue Ridge president Fred Reinhard said in a prepared statement.
