The German version of Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is to rebrand as TNT-Film with effect from July 4. The channel will also start to broadcast movies in the 16:9 widescreen mode.
According to a statement released by Turner Broadcasting System’s German office, TNT-Film will have a younger focus showing more recent movies. TCM Germany originally launched in December 2006 and is available in the premium tiers on a number of platforms.
Earlier this year, Turner Broadcasting System launched the TNT-Series channel.
