Dear friend of Deutsche Welle,
You have been listening to
the DW-RADIO/English program for a long time and we hope that Deutsche
Welle will remain a frequently used source of information for you also
in future. Much to our regret we have to inform you that there will be
no more shortwave broadcasts in English for your area as from October
30, 2011. The live stream will also be terminated. But DW-RADIO/English
will still be available via the satellite AsiaSat 3S. And on our web
site www.dw-world.de you will find a large attractive offer.
would like to explain to you our reasons for deciding to largely
discontinue shortwave transmissions of our radio broadcasts. The
worldwide rise of the internet, mobile reception and media convergence
have transformed methods and habits of communicating. DW and all other
international broadcasters have to ride these changes. Shortwave is
nowadays rarely used in most regions of the world, with the sole
exception of Africa. As a result, the English shortwave broadcasts
outside of Africa will be discontinued as from October 30, 2011.
DW will still be at your side to provide you with quality information.
We are committed to strengthening our internet offer, TV programming
and playout on mobile devices. We believe this is the best way for us
to continue offering you strong, high-quality information.
We very much hope you will stay with us.
