Travel Channel Deutschland will launch on the Kabelkiosk headend-in-the sky service for distribution across the German speaking countries on May 25.

“Germany is Europe’s largest TV market and also has the biggest number of people that take far away holidays,” according to Travel Channel CEO Richard Wolfe.

All programming, including some local productions, will be in German. One of the presenters will be Kristiane Backer, who used to host video clips in the early years of MTV Europe.

Travel Channel Deutschland is owned by London based Travel Channel International Limited, which also operates Travel Channel Productions and Travel Deals Direct.
