tm3 was a German private broadcaster. On 1 September 2001 it became the 9Live station, which ceased operation on 9 August 2011.[1]

The goal of the 25 August 1995 launched station, was to entertain women, with fashion shows or with the daily lifestyle show "Life and Living". tm3 headquarters was located in Munich.

Program[edit]

In October 1999, a request for the following thematic channels to the Bayerische Landeszentrale für neue Medien (Bavarian State Office for New Media) was approved:

  • tm3 - Life & living: Dream Garden
  • tm3 - Life & Living: Nice Ambient
  • tm3 - Life & Living: Enjoy Healthy
  • tm3 - Life & Living: Type Specific Style
  • tm3 - Sport
  • tm3 - Cinema fun
  • tm3 - The Before and After Show (with Gundis Zámbó)
  • tm3 – Lanotte; which resulted in 9Live

In the same year, the former "Women’s Channel" purchased the broadcasting rights for the UEFA Champions League,[2] for DM850 million, for four years, and broadcast live for one season before it was sold to RTL and Premiere in 2000.[3]

Early 2001 was the start of tm3 travel show, urlaubsreif, which was renamed that same year to sonnenklar. Through the concept of this show, the channel sonnenklar.TV was founded in 2003.

Restructuring[edit]

News Corporation took over the station between 1999 and 2000,[4] and transformed it into the "Champions League Station". The interest diminished in 2001, and the station was taken over by H.O.T Networks GmbH[5] and ProSiebenSat.1 Media.

As of April 23, 2001 tm3 launched, under the slogan "as real as life", an interactive live entertainment (13 hours a day), which paved the way for the developing 9Live station.
