Discovery Deutschland has extended its partnership with MX1 for fully managed playout and content management services.
Under the terms of the contract renewal, the technical services subsidiary of Astra satellite operator SES will continue to fully manage playout and media asset management tasks for Discovery Deutschland’s SD and HD channels. They include TLC, DMAX, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel and Shop 300 in Germany as well as DMAX Austria in SD.
Additionally, since January 1, 2019, a new channel, TLC Austria, is now distributed over the Astra 1N satellite at 19.2° East, reaching over 118 million TV homes across Europe.
Discovery Deutschland is using MX1 360, a unified media platform, to manage and deliver all linear and non-linear content. Once the ready-to-air programme files are delivered by Discovery, MX1 360 brings together the full range of media services, enabling the broadcaster to manage and deliver their content from a single interface to any broadcast platform.
