Onyx announces farewell tour

Pop station to transfer frequency to Terra Nova

COLOGNE — German music web Onyx TV will be closing this fall, to be replaced by a documentary channel.

The Cologne-based weblet was launched in 1996 by French company Groupe AB, squeezed in between the larger competitors Viva Media and MTV Germany, which both operate two local channels. Onyx has long confined itself to easy listening mainstream pop and only recently added niche programs and full-on concerts. Its frequencies will be transferred to Terra Nova, a channel to be fed with documentary programs on nature and animals from Groupe AB’s archives.
