Germany has its own gay station

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

TiMM, the first German TV station for gay men has started its broadcasts on Saturday the first of November. The station offers entertainment, documentaries, films, talkshows and news with a gay touch. TiMM wants to satisfy needs other stations leave untouched, says initiator and chief editor Frank Lucas in the German media. They present an episode of Noah’s Arc, which is about 4 gay black men in LA, as the opening show.

The independent commercial station can be received through cable and via the Astra satellite in over 15 million homes, but also on internet. TiMM will also be available through cable in Austria and the German speaking part of Switzerland soon. The Astra satellite beams the station to all of Europe for free.

Earlier Italy launched Gay TV, France Pink TV, the US had Logo and Here!TV and Canada had Pride Vision. Those channels all aimed at the entire GLBT community, but, like the Dutch OutTV TiMM focuses on gay men exclusively.

TiMM seems to have learned from its foreign predecessors: the station will be freely available via cable, satellite and internet.

Most other channels were included in pricy packages and pay TV in combination with lengthy commercial breaks nearly killed PinkTV.
