Dear broadcasting partners in Asia:
DW (Deutsch) is changing satellites in Asia.
Deutsche Welle's German-language channel, DW (Deutsch), is migrating from AsiaSat-7 to AsiaSat-5. The migration started in September 2016 and will come to an end on November 30, 2016. To continue receiving DW's German-language channel, please adjust your equipment as soon as possible to the new satellite and the new specs.
If you have been receiving DW (Deutsch) on AsiaSat-7, you will need to turn your satellite dish a few degrees to the orbital position of AsiaSat-5. If your satellite dish has a dual feed horn (LNB), you may be able to receive both satellites without turning your dish.
Please be advised that, after the satellite migration is finished on November 30, 2016, you will probably need a new receiver, able to decode mpeg-4 in order to continue receiving DW (Deutsch). Please take a look at the new satellite footprint for more reception details. You can also contact DW's local distribution agent in your country or drop a line to email@example.com if you need assistance or more information about DW (Deutsch).
Please keep in mind: DW (Deutsch) will cease transmission on AsiaSat-7 on November 30, 2016. If you haven't configured your reception hardware to the new AsiaSat 5 specs by then, your receiver won't be able to pick up the DW (Deutsch) signal anymore.
DW’s popular lifestyle magazine Euromaxx will soon be adapted for Malaysian audiences after a coproduction agreement between DW and Malaysia’s largest media group, TM Net. In 2016 and 2017, 52 regionally adapted episodes of Euromaxx will be broadcast across Malaysia on Hypp Sensasi, a network operated by TM Net.
In Pakistan, DW television and radio content is now being carried on two newly aquired partners. Three Star Cable is broadcasting DW’s English-language channel to more than 60,000 subscribers. Radio partner Highway FM is broadcasting DW news bulletins in Urdu at 6:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. local time.
DW and DW (Deutsch) are now available via Optus B D2 satellite on Puma TV, an international TV channel broadcasting in Oceania.
