In Portugal, it distributes three channels, two of which are premium channels. Since 1998 and prior to this establishment, Globo aired GNT Portugal and Canal Brasil in Portugal, which are currently unavailable. Despite GNT was one of the most watched channels in Portugal, it stooped being aired in Portugal in 2006 when the contract expired and Brazilian rival network Rede Record moved in.[2] It soon returned to Portugal, with a premium channel branded as TV Globo Portugal in 2007, currently renamed Globo Premium. In October 17, 2011, the Rede Globo subsidiary was inaugurated in Lisbon.[1]
