The HD channel will be distributed on the Telstar 12 satellite and the feed can be accessed throughout Europe. In addition to the linear channel, Chello DMC will support Shorts in the delivery of video on demand services to its distribution partners.

The channels are delivered with multiple audio- and subtitle languages to more than 35 countries across three continents.
