Sky Germany to launch pop-up Bond channel

sky deutschland_eingang_1253x823_02Sky in Germany is to follow the example of Sky’s UK pay TV operation by launching a pop-up channel devoted to James Bond movies.

The channel, Sky 007 HD, will air from October 5 until December 6 and will air all the James bond movies to which Sky has the rights.

The marketing campaign for the channel’s run kicked off ahead with a red carpet event at the Hamburg Hotel Atlantic Kempinski, used as a location in the movie Tomorrow Never Dies, featuring guest appearances by Germany’s only ‘Bond girl’ Karin Dor (You Only Live Twice), skier Willy Bogner, who served as cameraman and stuntman in a number of Bond films, and German Bond villains Götz Otto (Tomorrow Never Dies), Claude-Oliver Rudolph (The World Is Not Enough), Michael Pink (Skyfall) and Detlef Bothe who will appear in forthcoming movie Spectre.
