ProSieben Sat.1 Welt is a Canadian exempt Category B German language specialty channel. It is wholly owned by Ethnic Channels Group, with its name used under license from ProSiebenSat.1 Media, owners of ProSiebenSat.1 Welt. The channel sources the majority of its programming from ProSiebenSat.1 Welt, in addition to locally produced Canadian content.
In April 2006, Ethnic Channels Group was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called German TV, described as "a national, third-language, general interest, ethnic Category 2 specialty programming service devoted to the German-speaking community."
ProSiebenSat.1 Welt broadcasts entertainment programming including movies, music shows, television dramas and comedies, and more. Programming is derived from ProSiebenSat.1 Media's three channels that form the base for ProSiebenSat.1 Welt in the United States: Kabel Eins, ProSieben and Sat.1.
On November 4, 2014, the CRTC approved Ethnic Channel Group's request to convert ProSiebenSat. 1 Welt from a licensed Category B specialty service to an exempted Cat. B third language service.
