History Channel will launch the HD version of its network on Greece's OTE TV, following a deal between the pay TV service and A+E Networks UK.
OTE TV is available across Greece via satellite and IPTV. The service features more than 70 channels, and 17 HD channels.
"With the addition of History HD, leading factual entertainment channel, OTE TV further boosts its top quality content in the documentaries genre. Our goal remains to continue enhancing our high definition portfolio to the benefit of our subscribers," said George Gabritsos, Chief Officer BU OTE TV.
History launched the standard definition version of its channel in Greece in September 2005. Tom Davidson, managing director at A+E Networks UK, added: "Greece is a country with a rich and fascinating history so there is no better place to launch our high definition History Channel. Extending the reach of History to new audiences in Europe is a continuing priority for us and we believe that our channel adds tremendous value to our affiliates' offering."
