Digital terrestrial television (DTT) will again gain new channels in Germany after the Bavarian media authority BLM approved the distribution of the commercial free-to-air channels Tele 5 and ProSieben Maxx via DTT in Munich and southern Bavaria.
The licences for the broadcasts, which will take place on DTT channel K34, are granted until 31 October 2013. At its assembly in October, BLM plans to decide about long-term permissions.
Transmission of Tele 5 will commence on 1 August, with ProSieben Maxx to follow on 3 September. The channel will air children's and youth programmes during the day, and international series, movies and documentaries in the evening.
