The series launched on Starz in the US this summer and has been renewed for a second season.

It has now been sold to online platform Clarovideo in Latin America, which is present in 14 countries across the region. Subscribers will have access to the show in mid-2015.

In Europe, it has been acquired by Viaplay in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, HBO Nederland, 365 Media in Iceland, VRT in Belgium, and RTE in Ireland.

Outlander was previously sold to Foxtel’s SoHo channel in Australia, and Chinese online platform Sohu.

The series follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 and into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited and Claire is soon torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

The series was developed by Ronald D Moore, who executive produces with Jim Kohlberg. It is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining and Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.

SPT has distribution rights.
