German news channel N24 will launch a version of its channel for viewers in Austria on May 1, 2016.
Initially, only special advertising windows for the Alpine republic will be broadcast. From June 2016, a rolling on-screen caption will inform about Austrian and international news throughout the day.
Austrian original productions are planned in the medium term. Talks with potential partners are currently taking place, according to the broadcaster.
For viewers in Switzerland, N24 has been offering a localised version of its channel since 2013.
