The DW (Deutsche Welle) (until February 5th 2012: Deutsche Welle)[1] is Germany's international broadcaster. It broadcasts news and information on shortwave, Internet and satellite radio in 29 languages (DW (RADIO)). It has a satellite television service (DW (TV)) that is available in four languages, and there is also DW.DE, a 30-language online news site. DW, which in English means "German Wave", is similar to international broadcasters such as the BBC World Service, Radio Canada International, Voice of America, and Radio France Internationale. On February 6th 2012 Deutsche Welle was completely relaunched and now operates only as DW.[2]
