ProSieben (Sieben is German for seven) is a commercial television station in Germany distributed to a large extent via cable and satellite along with DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting – Terrestrial) in larger population centres. It began operations on January 1, 1989. Since 2003 the station, as part of the ProSiebenSat.1 Media, is owned by a group of investors led by Haim Saban. ProSieben is Germany’s second largest privately owned television company. Although some of ProSieben’s programming is self-produced, it also airs many North American imports. On May 3, 2012, ProSieben launched a sister payTV channel called ProSieben Fun.
