New Kärnten TV via satellite -
Kärnten TV via satellite
Kärnten TV, a regional television channel from Austrian federal state Carinthia, will be available via satellite from November 13.
The service will be distributed on Astra (19.2° East) in APS Astra Platform Services’ digital package with the signal being unencrypted. Kärnten TV will use the broadcasting slot of fellow Austrian regional TV channel Tirol TV, with daily transmissions from 9:30 – 10:00 CET, 18:30 – 19:00 CET, and from midnight until 00:30 CET.
Kärnten TV, launched in August 2008 and operated by the state of Carinthia in collaboration with commercial service providers, covers local news from the fields of politics, economics, research, sports, culture and society as well as presenting events and tourism offers. The channel, which was until now only available as a web-TV offer at w/w/w.k/a/er/nt/en.tv, also envisages cable carriage and wants to launch on DTT multiplexes.
Using Kärnten TV’s move as a model, regional channels from Upper Austria, Salzburg and Lower Austria also want to distribute their programmes via Astra from December
