MHz Networks will end its broadcast and cable distribution of international news channels March 31 in the Washington, D.C., market.
The move represents a change in television technologies as the company moves into digital streaming with MHz Choice and MHz Worldview, according to a March 19 news release.
MHz Choice is a subscription streaming service available in the U.S. and Canada that offers on-demand access to MHz's library of exclusive dramas, mysteries, and comedies. MHz Worldview is a linear television network available in select markets featuring blocks of international news channels and some of MHz's entertainment collection.
MHz Worldview remains available across the U.S. on AT&T Inc.'s DIRECTV and other public television stations, Frederick Thomas, president of MHz Networks, said in a statement. MHz Worldview will continue to be carried on Cox Communications Inc. in the D.C. area after April 1.
Further, the company is engaged in talks with the other cable providers to keep MHz Worldview on air and available for regional viewers.
MHz Networks offers U.S. viewers access to a library of international television mysteries, dramas, comedies and documentaries subtitled in English on DVD and its digital platform, MHz Choice.
