DTT viewers in German towns Hanover and Braunschweig will be able to receive four new channels in future: Entertainment channel Anixe, Christian family channel Bibel TV and home-shopping broadcasters QVC and HSE24.
NLM, the local media authority of federal state Lower Saxony, allocated the capacity in the new fourth DTT multiplex to the four channels in a public tender. Each broadcaster will get a 24 hour slot.
As the multiplex still has to be technically implemented, transmissions are expected to commence during the first half of 2012. With the latest additions, the DTT line-up in south eastern Lower Saxony will contain a total of 28 channels.
