Digital TV Europe, 5 Sept 2013: "Turner Broadcasting has signed a broadcast affiliate agreement with N1, a new channel for the Adria region. Under the agreement, N1 will be the exclusive news channel affiliate of CNN in the region, joining CNN’s extensive global network of affiliate channels. The deal gives N1 exclusive access to video and newsgathering resources from CNN International including live breaking news, news stories and programming, for transmission in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. N1 also will also have the option of translating selected CNN programming and news into localised languages for the first time in the region. N1 will give CNN access to its own reporting from the Adria region, which will be gathered by teams based in its Belgrade headquarters and in regional hubs including Sarajevo and Zagreb."
