DW strikes new deal with TVB Network Vision for Hong Kong carriage
Deutsche Welle (DW) has entered into a new partnership with TVB Network Vision to make its 24-hour English-language channel available to more viewers in Hong Kong.
DW is now available in the basic package of TVB Network Vision for its fibre cable subscribers at no additional charge. DW’s German-language channel DW (Asien) is already available in Hong Kong via nowTV and Hong Kong Cable. The English-language DW channel is also available on Hong Kong Broadband.
“We are excited to be expanding the distribution of our 24-hour English language channel, encapsulating the quality, breadth and depth of our programming,” said Petra Schneider, the director of distribution at DW. “Hong Kong is an important market for DW and our partnership with TVB Network Vision further builds on our commitment to bring in-depth, reliable news, information and culture from Europe to our viewers in Asia.”
Felix To, the CEO of TVB Network Vision, added: “We are honoured to have DW among the first batch of program channels to be incorporated in our service over the new fibre delivery network this year.”
