Kabelkiosk logoGerman cable operators wilhelm.tel and willy.tel will commence distribution of the Basis HD package from Eutelsat’s direct-to-cable platform KabelKiosk with 17 channels in July 2014.

The two companies which serve around 300,000 households in federal states Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein with TV, internet and telephony services have signed the carriage deal with Eutelsat. The customers will thereby gain access to further channels in HD quality in addition to the current KabelKiosk proposition.

The Basis HD line-up includes the HD channels operated by Germany’s two major commercial TV groups RTL and ProSiebenSat.1 as well as further commercial channels such as Comedy Central HD, DMAX HD, Nickelodeon HD, Sport1 HD, Tele 5 HD and VIVA HD.
