TNT Film is a German television channel owned by Turner Broadcasting System Europe. The channel broadcasts movies both in their original language and dubbed into German.

The channel launched on the Arena satellite platform with a full 24-hour schedule in December 2006 as TCM. It has later become available from other distributors, including Premiere from September 2007.

On July 4, 2009, the channel was overhauled and changed its name to TNT Film. After the change, the channel features recent films more prominently. The channel also switched to the 16:9 widescreen format.[1]


In August 2013, SES Platform Services (now MX1) won an international tender by Turner Broadcasting System, to provide playout services for TNT Film, and for TNT Serie, TNT Glitz, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and CNN International (in both SD and HD) for the German-speaking market, digitization of existing Turner content, and playout for Turner on-demand and catch-up services in Germany, Austria, Switzerland the Benelux region, from November 2013.[2]
