International travel and lifestyle channel TravelXP 4K HDR, also the world’s first travel channel in UHD/HDR resolution — which has been a rare, truly cutting edge digital innovation and perhaps the only one gifted by India to the world in Broadcasting, thanks to 4K visionary Prashant Chothani — has expanded it’s reach in German-speaking markets. It has now signed up with M7 Deutschland, Germany’s leading provider of TV entertainment for cable and IP networks.
The channel had been in Germany for 3 years now, on the country’s biggest operator, Deutsche Telecom.
TravelXP’s world class travel programming includes attractive holiday destinations from all over the world, and M7’s German-speaking audiences can also enjoy German-language programmes in Ultra HD quality on the channel, with which M7 has expanded its Ultra HD (UHD) portfolio. Travelxp 4K HDR is now available to network and platform operators in the German-speaking markets for distribution to their subscribers.
The world’s first travel channel in UHD/HDR resolution shows reports and features covering holiday destinations in more than 60 countries around the world 24 hours per day. The programmes are offered in German language on networks supplied by M7 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“We are excited about this attractive new addition to our UHD line-up: Travelxp 4k brings foreign cultures and exotic locations directly into the living room and enables viewers to experience destinations far away, particularly now that travelling is difficult,” said Christian Heinkele, Managing Director of Eviso Germany GmbH, business partner of M7 in Germany. “Travel reports and landscape images are the perfect examples of content where excellent TV/video resolution and powerful distribution infrastructures are essential. This is a great opportunity for public utility companies, network operators and fibre-optic providers to show what their networks are capable of.”
Sumant Bahl, Managing Director Europe & Africa, Travelxp, said: “We are delighted to further strengthen both our relationship with M7 Group as well as our 4K distribution in Germany. Travelxp 4K HDR is among the best in 4K and travel shows in the world. Apart from the vivid and immersive picture quality our channel offers, we are also excited about showcasing the original and interesting travel content we produce in diverse genres. We are confident that M7 audiences will love our shows.”
With Travelxp 4K HDR, M7 offers its partners a total of three UHD channels for distribution on their networks. This agreement builds upon the cooperation M7 Group and Travelxp have already established in the Benelux and Central Eastern European markets.
