JML launches home shopping channel for Germany

UK home shopping group JML has launched a German shopping channel, JML Shop, broadcast from the Astra position at 19.2° East.

JML, which has signed a five-year deal to occupy a slot vacated by Animal Planet Deutschland, plans to extend its services to other countries in the Astra footprint.
Animal Planet Deutschland was withdrawn from Sky Deutschland’s bouquet in June following a new contract between Discovery and the Germany pay-TV operator. The channel is now available on the platform of cable operator Unitymedia.
