HONG KONG — AMC NetworksSundance Channel is to launch in Indonesia, following a carriage deal with DTH satellite platform Indovision.

The film and drama-led network will be made available as a linear channel sub-titled into Bahasa Indonesia.

The move is part of a concerted catch-up effort by AMC/Sundance Channel Global in South East Asia. The past year has also seen the establishment by the group of new outposts for scheduling and on-air creative services based in Singapore, and affiliate operations spearheaded out of Hong Kong.
