Epic Drama Channel Extends Footprint in CEE


Viasat World has struck a carriage pact with M7 Group for its Epic Drama channel to be added to the Skylink DTH platform in the Czech Republic and Slovakian territories.

M7 Group’s Skylink is the largest DTH platform in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Epic Drama HD will be available in the SMART Basic Pay-TV tier on Skylink, alongside Viasat Explore, Viasat History and Viasat Nature—which the deal also renews. An Epic Drama SVOD service will also launch via Skylink at a date to be confirmed.

Tamas Horvath, commercial director at Viasat World, commented: “We are delighted that M7 Group is adding our brand-new content brand Epic Drama to Skylink—testament to our commitment to understanding our clients’ needs and our shared goal of delivering relevant content to audiences. Epic Drama’s differentiated proposition sets it apart from the crowd—giving people access to world-class, acclaimed drama content 24/7 when and where they want it. Its success to date is attributable to our agility to respond to what viewers and partners are looking for as an independent broadcaster, alongside our ambition to grow our reach and audience.”

Jaromír Glisník at M7 Group added: “With so much content out there, there is still demand for quality series channels which expertly curate the very best of what is on offer. Viasat World’s pedigree in content curation speaks volumes; its high performing documentary channels which aggregate top quality content really resonate with our customers, so we are thrilled they will now also receive Epic Drama which is proving to be a real hit with audiences.”
