Swiss cablenet Naxoo is adding Disney Cinemagic HD and NHK World to its network, in the process offering customers a free trial for the first two months.Launching November 1, Disney Cinemagic will join nine other HD channels on the network, including National Geographic, BBC HD and I-Concerts HD. Cinemagic will also be available à la carte for SFr6.50 per month with free access to the HD version for anyone in possession of Naxoo’s HD ‘Drivebox’ receiver.

News and information channel NHK World is being included as one of 65 channels within Naxoo’s basic pack.

However, the channels will take the place of Foxlife, which Naxoo says was demanding “an excessive increase in charges”. Baby TV is also being removed “because the audience is too small”.

Serving the canton of Geneva, Télégenève’s Naxoo has 90,000 subscribers of which 43,000 take the digital TV service.
