Already starting from 3 September 2005 it will give always Saturday in the time of 5:30 - 11:30 o'clock its own program block of Cartoon to network with cable 1.

Not good news here for analogue viewers from the sky days most recievers are only tuned to get MTV2POP and Eurosport and the main german channels. People will not know how to retune the system so they will get rid of it. Plently of clubs,bars and hotels still have analogue on mtv2pop because it replaced the old mtv uk frequencey years ago and its FTA. But I think many hotels arnt bothered if they can still get Eurosport for free.
