Munich / Heidelberg, August 12, 2011. ProSiebenSat.1 Group and Kabel BW have concluded a long-term contract to distribute their free- and pay-channels and also for the Video-on-Demand products of the TV-Group. In addition to the SD-channels, the agreement also encompasses the new ProSiebenSat.1 Group HD-channels. Already starting on 15 August 2011, viewers of the cable network operator from Baden-Württemberg can for the first time also access SAT.1 HD, ProSieben HD, kabel eins HD and sixx HD. The high resolution broadcast allows TV-images to be displayed with dramatically more detail than before. Conrad Albert, General Counsel ProSiebenSat.1 Group: "The new agreement with Kabel BW enables an even larger number of our viewers to enjoy the reception of our HD-broadcasts and their crystal clear images. At the same time, this long-term, directional agreement serves to secure the distribution of our broadcasts and to concurrently expand the reach of our Video-on-Demand products." "We are delighted by this encompassing agreement with the ProSiebenSat.1 Group. It is precisely the high resolution channels of the broadcast-group which enrich our large HD offering and our programming package "MeinTV HD Plus" enormously", declares Harald Rösch, Kabel BW's Chief Executive. Kabel BW customers can obtain access to the HD-channels from ProSiebenSat.1 Group via the "MeinTV HD Plus" programming package. In addition, future access to the Video-on-Demand content of ProSiebenSat.1 Group will be possible via the "Kabel BW Videothek". This way the family of broadcasters offers additional methods of access to its moving-image content beyond the existing portal. The "Kabel BW Videothek" was started in December 2010 and can be accessed with an interactive receiver. In addition to the distribution of Free-TV broadcasts, the inclusion of the two Pay-TV channels "Sat.1 Comedy" and "kabel eins CLASSICS" was also secured on a long-term basis. sixx, the channel catering to a female audience, can already be received since the beginning of July via the analogue Kabel BW cable-network. As the youngest channel of the TV-Group, sixx went on-air in May of 2010 and already boasts a technical reach to 30 million households. Press Contact: Marcus Prosch
