Starting August 5, 2013, subscribers of TVB Network Vision, one of Hong Kong’s pay-TV operators, will have access to DW’s 24-hour English language channel. 
“We are excited to be expanding the distribution of our 24-hour English language channel, encapsulating the quality, breadth and depth of our programming,” commented Petra Schneider, Director of Distribution at DW. 

“Hong Kong is an important market for DW and our partnership with TVB Network Vision further builds on our commitment to bring in-depth, reliable news, information and culture from Europe to our viewers in Asia.”

Felix To, Chief Executive Officer, TVB Network Vision, said: “We are honoured to have DW among the first batch of programme channels to be incorporated in our service over the new fibre delivery network this year.” 
Deutsche Welle also offers an additional channel with programming in German in Hong Kong: DW (Asien) is distributed on nowTV and Hong Kong Cable. The English channel DW is available on Hong Kong Broadband. The launch on TVB Network Vision makes DW now accessible to all cable and IPTV households in Hong Kong.
