ProSiebenSat1 Welt is a Canadian exempt Category B German language specialty channel. It is wholly owned by Ethnic Channels Group, with its name used under license from ProSiebenSat.1 Media, owners of ProSiebenSat.1 Welt. The channel sources the majority of its programming from ProSiebenSat.1 Welt, in addition to locally produced Canadian content.
In April 2006, Ethnic Channels Group was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called German TV, described as "a national, third-language, general interest, ethnic Category 2 specialty programming service devoted to the German-speaking community."
The channel launched in June 2006 under the name ProSiebenSat1 Welt.
ProSiebenSat1 Welt broadcasts entertainment programming including movies, music shows, television dramas and comedies, and more. Programming is derived from ProSiebenSat.1 Media's six channels that form the base for ProSiebenSat.1 Welt in the United States: Kabel Eins, ProSieben, Sat.1, sixx, Sat.1 Gold and ProSieben Maxx.
