Disney to debut two channels on KDG Germany

MUMBAI: The big mouse is all set to speak German. Disney is all geared to launch on KDG Germany this November.

Disney, say media reports, would be debuting in Germany on 10 November with two children's channels Playhouse Disney Channel and Toon Disney Channel, on a new digital cable platform.

The channels will launch as part of Kabel Digital Home, the new digital pay-TV platform from Kabel Deutschland (KDG). Meanwhile, Playhouse Disney will be Germany's first preschool channel and will air from 6 am to 10 pm, say the reports.

Apart from the Disney offerings, KDG will also carry E! Entertainment, BBC Prime, Fashion TV, 13th Street, AXN, Sci-Fi, Kinowelt, History Channel, Nat Geo, Planet, Extreme Sports, ESPN Classic Sports, Sailing Channel, NASN, Motors TV, MTV Hits, MTV Dance, VH1 Classic, Trace TV and Playboy TV. The new platform launches today.

Prior to the German launch, the two Disney channels have debut recently in the UK, France and Spain.

According to KDG's management spokesman Roland Steindorf, "Playhouse Disney and Toon Disney will be two important components of Kabel Digital Home, providing some great entertainment for families. We're sure our customers will be very enthusiastic."

Germany's Federal Cartel Office last week vetoed KDG's plans to merge with three regional cable operators. Operating cable services in 13 German states, with a reach of more than 10 million households, Munich-based KDG is already Europe's biggest cable operator, inform the reports.
