Turner broadens pay TV in Germany

Adds fourth channel with U.S. series

MUNICH -- Turner Broadcasting System is expanding its pay TV slate in Germany, adding a fourth channel featuring such U.S. series as "ER" and "Everybody Loves Raymond" as well as German premieres like "30 Rock," TBS Germany said Tuesday.

The new channel will go live with "significant distribution" over cable and satellite early next year. TBS is still negotiating with German operators.

The company has already established Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Turner Classic Movies in the German pay TV market.
