German pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland will add AXN HD to its line-up on 4 October 2012. DTH satellite subscribers in Germany and Austria will be able to receive the channel in basic package "Sky Welt".

With the action and entertainment channel operated by Sony Pictures Television Deutschland, which is already available in standard-definition from Sky, the Sky HD offering will now rise to a total of 59 channels.

As a highlight for the Sky launch, AXN HD will show the fifth season of US series "Breaking Bad" as a German TV debut. The award-winning series about the terminally ill chemistry teacher Walter White who turns into a drug dealer will air Thursdays at 21.10 from 4 October 2012.
