Smile German Channel Now available on Rogers!

ProSiebenSat.1 Welt has now launched -FINALLY!- on Rogers Digital Cable. It is available on Ch. 629. German viewers have been without a channel of their own since German TV shut down but now they finally have something to watch.


TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - Rogers Cable Communications Inc. announced today
the addition of ProSiebenSat.1 Welt to its extensive list of multicultural
programming. Rogers Personal TV customers can watch a free preview of
ProSiebenSat.1 Welt on channel 629, in Ontario, until July 6th.
ProSiebenSat.1 Welt is a German-language channel broadcasted from
Unterfohring. It offers a wide variety of programming from Sat.1, ProSieben,
Kabel1 and N24. Programs include movies, popular series like "Der Bulle von
Tolz", and "Edel & Starck", comedies, news, sports, documentaries and much
more. In addition, ProSiebenSat.1 Welt covers all "TV Total" events including
horse jumping and high diving championships as well as live coverage of two
Bundesliga (First German League) soccer games every week.
With the addition of ProSiebenSat.1 Welt, Rogers continues to offer its
customers the most multicultural programming with 46 channels in over 20
different languages.
"Rogers is thrilled to be able to offer ProSiebenSat.1 Welt to its
customers just in time for the 2006 FIFA World Cup(TM)," said David Purdy,
Vice-President of Television for Rogers Cable. "Soccer fans can not only come
to Rogers for the most multicultural programming, but they can also experience
FIFA World Cup FREE On Demand, on their phone, online and much more."
At the end of the free preview, Rogers Personal TV customers can order
ProSiebenSat.1 Welt for $14.95 a month plus the rental or purchase of a
digital cable set-top box.

All football fans from New York to Los Angeles will again along-have a temperature if it applies again to push the title defender from the throne to. Because ProSiebenSat.1 world also in the new season 2006/07 again each week the Top plays of the first federal league live to present, commentated in German language of hochkarätigen football experts of the Sat.1-Redaktion.
