Astra Deutschland said that it has extended the partnership with Bibel TV to broadcast its Christian programmes.

The free television station Bibel TV broadcasts for 24 hours a day. Across Europe, the station can be received via Astra 19.2 degrees East on the frequency 12552 MHz in SD and 11244 MHz H in HD.

The number of households in Germany that receive broadcasts in HD increased to 29.84 million in 2018 from 27.48 million in 2017, while just under 22 percent of the households still receive their programmes in SD quality, according to the TV Monitor survey carried out in 2018.
