Microsoft To Launch German Channel
  LUBECK, Germany, 96/11/29 (SatND) -- Microsoft Corp. plans to launch a
dedicated TV channel targeted at an estimated audience of 40,000 software
developers in German-speaking countries in Europe. The software giant will
utilise the digital TV infrastructure of Pro Sieben Digital Media GmbH,
offering training and information services for computer professionals.

  Pro Sieben, one of the three leading commercial channels in Germany,
scrapped plans for a digital TV package earlier this year and announced it
would concentrate on business TV applications instead.
