Viasat World’s Epic Drama heads to Bulgaria

Viasat World’s Epic Drama channel is to launch in Bulgaria via telco Vivacom.

The channel will be made available on Vivacom TV, where it will reach around 450,000 users. Epic Drama’s SVOD catalogue will also be available to subscribers by the end of the year.

Epic Drama will join Viasat World’s other channels – TV1000, Viasat Nature, Viasat History and Viasat Explore – which are already broadcast by the operator.

Program highlights upon launch include the second series of Harlots, Babylon Berlin and Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands.

Epic Drama launched in Viasat World’s key international markets in December 2017. It now reaches more than 10 million subscribers via 60 operators in 16 markets.

Viasat World operates 27 pay-TV channels and on-demand services, with more than 164 million subscriptions across 50 countries and territories.

Emma Jones, VP of commercial affairs at Viasat World, said: “We are delighted that Vivacom has decided to launch Epic Drama, now taking our complete flagship portfolio on its platform. We have become great partners – working closely together to bring the best of content to audiences via our expertly curated channels.”

Kristina Tabakova, senior manager of products and services at Vivacom, added: “We welcome Epic Drama to the Viva-com family, alongside Viasat World’s other much-loved channels. It is a pleasure to work with a like-minded broadcaster which puts great focus on meeting the changing needs of the audience, serving up its package of world-class content for them to watch where, when and how they wish. After a successful decade of partnership, we look forward to what the next decade will bring as we extend our agreement to take Viasat World’s flagship portfolio.”
