World brief

Germany’s first travel sales satellite channel Via1, which had just started to get terrestrial exposure, has filed for insolvency.

Parent company HomeNet pulled the plug after the channel failed to attract new investors. Via1 linked up with all-news channel N-TV this month, providing a weekly program presenting trips for high-income groups.

Via1 said that the digital channel and the window on N-TV would remain, but that long-term prospects are uncertain.
