German children's channel Junior is set to broadcast on pay-TV platform Teleclub in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The Swiss subscription broadcaster has acquired the corresponding rights, according to Junior's parent company Studio 100 Media.

Junior will be available to Teleclub's customers as part of the "Teleclub Family" package. The pay-TV channel which broadcasts on pay-TV platform Sky Deutschland in Germany and Austria shows children's and family programmes such as "Maya the Bee", "Vicky the Viking", "Heidi" and "Pinocchio".

"The partnership with Teleclub sets the basis for further and future co-operations and strengthens our position in the European market", Patrick Elmendorff, managing director of Studio 100 Media, said in Munich.
