iMusic1 launches on DTT in Germany
Jörn Krieger ©RapidTVNews | 05-01-2012 German music channel iMusic1 has launched on DTT in the Rhine-Main region.
The Frankfurt-based broadcaster takes over the capacity from Christian family channel Bibel TV which terminated its DTT transmission in the region at the end of 2011.
iMusic1 uses the slot each day between 20.00 and 12.00 CET with entertainment channel Anixe occupying the remaining hours.
After Berlin in which iMusic1 launched on DTT in early 2011, the Rhine-Main region which has Frankfurt as its metropolitan capital is the second large urban region in which the channel can be received via digital terrestrial frequencies with further regions to follow in the forthcoming months. The channel is also available on cable, satellite, IPTV and the internet.
LPR, the local media authority of federal state Hessen, allocated the DTT capacity to iMusic1 and Anixe in December 2011.
