German commercial free-to-air TV channel ProSieben Maxx has launched on DTT in federal state North-Rhine Westphalia.

Transmitter network operator Media Broadcast distributes the 24 hour service on the transmitter sites in Cologne and Bonn on channel 53 and in Essen, Dortmund, Langenberg, Wesel and Düsseldorf on channel 55 within the ProSiebenSat.1 bouquet.

The capacity was made available through a technical optimisation of the multiplex. To access the new channel, viewers are recommended to initiate a channel search on their DVB-T reception device.

With movies, series, documentaries and original productions, ProSieben Maxx targets a male audience between 14 and 39 years of age.
