While The Smithsonian Channel has found a home
on most major
US-based programming outlets
, it's not satisfied just yet. As of this week, Smithsonian Networks has commissioned indie producer and distributor Off the Fence to "represent its catalog of high-definition programming in all international territories excluding North America." The deal covers some 50 titles which will be presented at MIP in Cannes this April, and moreover, the two have even agreed to work together on "packaging co-productions for future Smithsonian Networks projects." Needless to say, we're hoping this newfound partnership will enable Smithsonian Channel to get added to HD lineups abroad in the near future.
