DW TV English
DW TV started as RIAS-TV, a television station founded in August 1988 by West Berlin broadcaster RIAS Radio in the American Industry / Rundfunk im Amerikanischen Sektor. The fall of the Berlin Wall the following year and the reunification of Germany in 1990 meant that RIAS-TV would be shut down. On April 1, 1992, Deutsche Welle took over RIAS-TV broadcasting facilities to start broadcasting DW TV, a television channel broadcasting in German and English via satellite, and added a short Spanish broadcast section the following year. He started working 24 hours in 1995 12 hours German, 10 hours English, 2 hours Spanish. At that time DW TV introduced a new news studio and a new logo.
In 2001, Deutsche Welle together with ARD and ZDF founded the German TV subscription TV channel for North American viewers. The project was closed after four years due to low subscriber numbers. Since then it has been replaced by the DW-TV channel also a subscription service.
Unlike many other international broadcasters, DW-TV does not charge terrestrial stations for its programming use, and as a result, News Journal and other programs are in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. In the Philippines, selected Anglophone programs are shown nationwide on Net 25 and PTV 4. In the US, some of its programs have been distributed through World Channel and MHz Worldview, but several stations have since offered full DW-TV transport in certain regions after the closure of MHz Worldview in 2020.
In March 2009, DW-TV expanded its television services in Asia with two new channels: DW-TV Asia and DW-TV Asia +. DW-TV Asia (German DW-TV Asien) includes 16 hours of German programs and 8 hours of English, while DW-TV Asia + includes 18 hours of English programs and 6 hours of German programs. [one]
In August 2009, DW-TV stopped moving in the UK on Sky channel 794, but continues to be used via other European satellites available in the UK.
Deutsche Welle relaunched its television channels on February 6, 2012, using the acronym DW for all its services. Deutsche Welle also renewed its television programs.
Deutsche Welle changed its schedules again on June 22, 2015, merged DW (Europe) to become a 24-hour English news channel in Asia and Oceania, and ceased English programming in DW (Arabia) and DW (Español).
