MTV Networks wants to expand its digital TV offer in Germany this year: HDTV channel MTV Networks High Definition (MTVN HD) will launch in early 2009 while pay-TV service Nick Jr., which targets pre-school children from 3 to 5 years, will follow later in the year.
The plans were announced by MTV Networks Germany in Berlin without revealing further details.
MTVN HD, which launched in Europe on September 15 2008, is currently available in several countries including the UK, France and Scandinavia. The channel offers a 24 hour service with music, entertainment and children’s programmes from MTV Networks’ channels such as MTV, VH1 and Nickelodeon.
Nick Jr., which went on air in 1988 in the USA, can already be received in several European countries including the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.
