Munich, July 29, 2015. ProSiebenSat.1 Digital has acquired a majority stake in SMARTSTREAM.TV, an automated trading platform for digital video advertising. With more than 300 million video views per month, SMARTSTREAM.TV is one of the largest providers of video advertising space in Germany and Europe. The broadcast group has held a 25% share in the company since the end of 2013, and that stake will now increase to 80%. The agreement is subject to approval by the relevant antitrust authorities. Dr. Christian Wegner, Member of the Executive Board ProSiebenSat.1 Group, said: "With annual growth rates approaching 50%, the German programmatic advertising market has demonstrated highly dynamic development.

"When children do sports, they speak one language."
“UKIMWI” is spelled out in capital letters on the ground of the dusty sports field in Bukoba, Tanzania. Ukimwi is Swahili, and it means AIDS. The children from the elementary school put the word together using lots of little wooden sticks.
