US broadcaster Fox International Channels will launch the German version of Nat Geo People on 5 April 2014.

The spin-off service of National Geographic Channel focusing on people, adventures and cultures will be available on the cable networks of Kabel Deutschland, Unitymedia and Kabel BW with further distribution partners to follow. Kabel Deutschland will carry the channel in high definition (HD) while Unitymedia and Kabel BW will initially only distribute a standard definition (SD) feed.

Nat Geo People will screen both US programmes as German TV debuts and German original productions. The schedule includes series with wildlife film-maker Casey Anderson, celebrity chef Kiran Jethwa and war reporter Diego Buñuel.
