German TV channel RTL Nitro will drop the RTL brand and just call itself Nitro from July 31, 2017.
“In the first years, we benefitted a lot from the power of the RTL brand. Now we take the next step and want to express a newly defined self-conception,” said managing director Oliver Schablitzki.
A highlight in the channel’s schedule will be the new football programme 100% Bundesliga – Fußball bei Nitro the free-to-air channel will show each Monday night from 22.10 until 0.15 CET from the upcoming new Bundesliga season. It will contain extensive summaries of all 18 first and second division Bundesliga games from the weekend.
