DW now available in Washington DC 24/7

Deutsche Welle's flagship channel is now available around the clock in Washington DC as well as being broadcast nationwide via satellite in HD.

The extension of the partnership was announced at a reception held at the Newseum in Washington with guests from politics, business and the media. "The investment and focus on our English TV channel continues to pay off and this agreement with MHz Networks is an important step," said DW Director General Peter Limbourg. DW is now available in approximately 400,000 households in the US capital on channel MHz 11.

"We have been working together for more than 20 years," said Frederick Thomas, the President and CEO of MHz Networks. "Given the current state of politics in the USA, DW’s voice is extremely important."

Headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, MHz Networks has been broadcasting a three-hour block of DW from 15:00 to 18:00 (Eastern Time) on its channel MHz Worldview since October 2015. MHz Worldview is picked up by DirectTV, more than 31 PBS stations and many other cable networks. It’s available in markets like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and reaches more than 40 million households.
