On its Facebook page, the ad-supported free-TV channel informs its viewers about the move.
“With regrets we have to inform you that due to the global corona situation and the resulting difficult economic circumstances, we had to suspend our channel on the Astra satellite for the time being. However, we have already found ways to continue to be available via satellite, which we will present shortly.”
The channel can still be received as a live-stream on its website.
Meanwhile, the previously used Astra capacity on the frequency 12.692 GHz H (SR 22,000, FEC 5/6) has been taken over by German music channel Volksmusik.tv, a sister channel of Deutsches Musik Fernsehen.
