The deal builds on the two companies’ existing partnership by providing carriage of AMCNI CNE’s full portfolio of networks to Slovak Telekom’s Magio and Digi Slovakia and T-Mobile TV Czech Republic customers with carriage across IPTV, DTH, cable and OTT platforms.

The deal also includes distribution of Sport 1, Sport 2, AMC, Film+, Minimax, Megamax, JimJam, Spektrum, Spektrum Home, TV Paprika, CBS Reality, The Outdoor Channel and Extreme Sports Channel.

As a result, subscribers will be able to enjoy key sporting events such as the second leg of the Copa del Rey El Clásico on February 27, Formula 1’s Australian Grand Prix in March, KHL’s Play Offs and new rounds of the Coppa Italia. Flagship channel AMC will debut dramas including new episodes from original martial arts series Into the Badlands, followed by premieres of Fear the Walking Dead, NOS4A2 and The Terror later in 2019. In addition, TV Paprika will exclusively premiere Jamie’s Quick and Easy, the latest show from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

“We’ve distinguished ourselves in the marketplace by consistently offering compelling, premium quality content, and this multifaceted partnership underscores the enduring high demand for that content from viewers, distributors and advertisers,” said Balázs Hajós, VP of Affiliate Sales of AMC Networks International – Central and Northern Europe. “As AMCNI continues to experience strong growth momentum across the globe, we’re pleased to continue to provide Deutsche Telekom Group and their customers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia with our high-quality programming and popular brands that engage, entertain and build passionate fan communities.”

“Slovak Telekom’s Magio and Digi are the biggest TV providers in Slovakia, covering more than 620,000 households,” added Andrej Miklánek, head of TV content at Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile. [The business] in the Czech Republic is the fastest growing television service in the territory.

This success is due not only to our exclusive sport, documentary, kids and music channels, but also thanks to our cooperation with experienced industry leader, AMCNI CNE. We appreciate its balanced portfolio of channels that cover all possible TV genres, including sports, kids, documentary, films and series. We are looking forward to further developing our business with AMCNI CNE.
