FOX International to launch in Hungary in February
Be advised: Coming to Hungary in 2014 are an army of zombies and bands of international terrorists. Also serial killers, crusading geniuses and perhaps most frightening of all, world-(in)famous enfant terrible Bart Simpson and his all-American family.
Yes, 21st Century Fox has announced that its FOX International Channels (FIC) service will be extended to Hungary via the Magyar Telekom cable TV platform beginning in February.
Originally founded in 1993, the FIC slate of programming has recently undergone rapid expansion in Europe; in 2013 along, 11 nations on The Continent – Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Serbia and Slovenia – have been added to FIC’s international audience.
Upon announcing this most recent expansion for FIB, the company’s CEE executive vice president Carlos Ortega promised that “Our new audience will enjoy premieres of world-class entertainment content, and an impressive list of productions that will be scheduled and promoted to serve the needs of the local market.”
Said list includes its more popular shows in the U.S., including The Simpsons, The Walking Dead, 24, Da Vinci’s Demons and The Bridge. FIC will begin programming with an 18 hour per day schedule.
