Ireland's Channel 6 inks programming deals

Numb3rs / CBS

Ireland's forthcoming 'Channel 6' has acquired the rights to air a raft of shows from CBS Paramount.

Key series in the deal, signed at the recent NATPE conference in Las Vegas, include crime drama Numb3rs and ended comedies Frasier and Sex and the City. Sci-fi comes in the form of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Charmed while drama is provided by 7th Heaven.

"Our focus is on providing Irish viewers with a mix of both local and international entertainment programming," said Michael Murphy, Channel 6's director of programming. “We are delighted to be able to offer our viewers such high-quality, well-known series right at the start. We anticipate that this will be the first of several deals with our friends at CBS Paramount."

The channel will launch via cable later this year.
