MX1, a global solution provider of media services and a wholly-owned subsidiary of SES, announced that Discovery Deutschland, a TV and digital media broadcast station based in Munich, Germany, will use MX1’s managed media-, and distribution services to deliver an eighth German channel, HOME & GARDEN TV (HGTV), which will be available to viewers from 6 June 2019.

MX1 is a global solution provider of media services and a wholly-owned subsidiary of SES. Discovery Deutschland was already relying on MX1 services and capacity on SES’s ASTRA satellites for seven of their German TV channels.
