Networks and Canadian television production company Alliance Atlantis Communications on Friday said they were teaming up to launch a Canadian version of Scripps’ digital cable network Fine Living, extending a relationship that has already brought the Food Network and Home & Garden Television to Canada.

No financial details were provided, but the long-term arrangement will result in Scripps’ holding a minority interest in the Canadian versions of the lifestyle channels.

The companies said that Fine Living will launch in September, with Canadian cable operator Shaw and satellite operator Starchoice carrying the network to more than 1 million households.
