Sogecable has also licensed non-exclusive pay-per-view rights to recent Col pics including “American Sweethearts” and “Black Hawk Down.” These will air on Sogecable digital TV platform Canal Satelite Digital.

CSD will also continue to carry CTSI action web AXN. The renewed deal kicks in as of January.
