Premiere is the first German Pay-TV company, offering several channels of digital content via satellite and cable.

The channel originally started off as a single Astra analogue satellite channel, showing films dubbed in German, live football matches from the German Bundesliga (league championship) and once the UEFA Cup. As well as documentaries, TV series and once in the mid 90's late-night erotic films. After the coming of the digital age, the service has since consisted of many channels with many new ones added over the years.
