History[edit] Kanal 9
Kanal 9
uses the space formerly occupied by ONE Television in the terrestrial network. This caused some controversy. A clause in the broadcasting license states that "news from the European Union and programmes from different European countries" should be included in the broadcasts.[2] ONE used to broadcast several French and German programmes, as well as the news programme European Journal to comply with this clause. As SBS have stated that Kanal 9
Kanal 9
will not broadcast any news at all, they could possibly violate the license. The channel opened at 4.45pm (CET) with a Royal League

and Hammarby IF. This was followed by an Oscars nights containing the movie The Pianist up to the Academy Awards
Academy Awards
at 2am. The first week's schedule also included European Journal and some non-British European content to comply with the broadcasting license, but it was broadcast outside primetime. In the first weeks the channel had ratings over 100,000 viewers several times thanks to the broadcasts of ice hockey games. The highest rating in March 2007 was 215,000 for two ice hockey games. On 2 June 2007 Kanal 9
