German music channel Yavido will drop its DTH satellite distribution on Astra (19.2° East) at the end of 2011.
The decision will also affect all cable networks and IPTV platforms in Germany, Austria and Switzerland fed by the Astra signal, according to the broadcaster.
Yavido can continue to be received as a livestream on the internet at http://www.yavido.tv as well as through the HbbTV standard on TV sets and set-top-boxes hooked up to the internet.
The channel is integrated into the hybrid TV portals of several hardware manufacturers including Loewe, Philips, Sharp, Toshiba, LG and VideoWeb.
