We are confident that our distinctive and captivating programs will establish The HISTORY Channel as the premier choice for Bulgarian viewers’’.

Tomasz Teodorczyk, Director of Content and Brands, Poland, and CEE adds: ‘’Launching our advertising feed on Bulgarian HISTORY Channel isn't just about reaching audiences; it's about strategically positioning our brand, fostering meaningful connections, and driving impactful engagement. We want to be even more local, and this launch will be an excellent continuation of our journey in Bulgaria’’.
