Sat.1 is a privately owned German television broadcasting station. Sat.1 was the first privately owned television broadcasting station in Germany, having started one day before RTL.


Sat.1 Sat1 Wikipedia

It started in January 1984 as PKS (Programmgesellschaft für Kabel- und Satellitenrundfunk), initially a joint venture of various publishing houses, and was renamed to Sat.1 in January 1985. The first broadcast could only be seen by roughly 1200 households who owned cable access in the city of Ludwigshafen. Early programs included old films, mainly from the archives of KirchMedia, American hit series and game shows (the most notable show being the German version of Wheel of Fortune, Glücksrad). Later, the station acquired a name for its original series and TV films.
