Two years after its Stateside launch, Fine Living will be exported to Canada.
Scripps Networks, in conjunction with Alliance Atlantis Communications Inc., will launch the lifestyle network Sept. 3 in that nation, where it will join sister services Food Network and Home & Garden Television.
Scripps and Alliance are partners in the networks north of the border, with the U.S. programming holding a minority stake in the services.
The parties said Fine Living will bow before 1 million Canadian households through a lengthy free-preview period on Shaw Communications Inc.’s digital cable package and satellite service Starchoice.
Additional distribution details were not available at press time.
