Discovery Deutschland, a TV and digital media broadcast station based in Munich, Germany, is to use MX1's managed media and distribution services to deliver an eighth German channel, HOME & GARDEN TV (HGTV), which will be available to viewers from 6 June 2019.

Discovery Deutschland has been relying on MX1 services and capacity on SES's ASTRA satellites for seven of its German TV channels. For this eighth and brand-new channel, MX1 is delivering fully managed playout, including advanced graphics, uplink, and distribution services. The free-to-air SD channel is distributed via SES's ASTRA 1KR satellite at the prime orbital position of 19.2 degrees East, which reaches over 118 million homes across Europe.

"MX1 is a valued supplier, and the contracting services and ASTRA satellite capacity for the eighth channel underlines the success of our work together on the seven channels MX1 already manages," said Alberto Horta, deputy general manager of Discovery Deutschland. "Advertisers have complex demands and expect a seamless integration into our broadcast, with which MX1 provides us. MX1's broad range of media services delivers world-class reliability and exceptional quality, which is essential for maintaining high standards and satisfying our advertising partners."
