German women's channel sixx will be available via DTT in German federal states Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein from 1 August 2011. The channel was the only contender for the capacity in the tender arranged by local media authority MA HSH.

The slot, which sixx was granted runs for a 10-year period and used to be occupied by quiz channel 9Live which decided to terminate its DTT distribution on 31 July. In Hamburg sixx will use DTT channel K46, in Hamburg/Lübeck K59 and in Kiel K57.

To be able to receive the new service, viewers might have to perform a channel search routine on their DTT reception device.
