Rupert Murdoch Buys '9/11 Press For Truth'

Well, sort of. '9/11 Press For Truth' will have it's Australian television premiere on The History Channel, owned by FoxTel, a Rupert Murdoch-owned company.

'Press For Truth' will premiere as part of a day-long block of programming devoted to Sept. 11th on Australia's The History Channel in honor of the sixth anniversary of the attacks. Hopes are high that this may lead to a U.S. History Channel deal.

Also buying 'Press For Truth' for television broadcasts, most likely over the 9/11 anniversary, are the Polish digital satellite channel Planete, owned by Vivendi Universal, and Spanish public television channel TVE, the largest audio-visual group in Spain to broadcast in the Spanish language.

These are the second channels in both Poland and Spain to purchase the movie for television. Another deal with Sweden is being finalized.
