MHZ Shuts Down Worldview

MHZ Networks, which specializes in international mystery series, announced an end to its free, over-the-air, non-commercial channel, MHz Worldview, on March 1.

Since launching MHz Worldview 12 years ago, MHZ Networks has expanded into subscription streaming with MHz Choice and, most recently, an ad-supported channel, MHz Now, over Samsung smart TVs.

Unlike MHz Worldview, neither MHz Choice nor MHz Now supplements its mysteries with live English-language news from such sources as France 24, Germany’s Deutsche Welle, and Al Jazeera.

MHz Worldview is currently running in 26 markets. Tonight’s typical schedule includes France 24 Live from 7 to 9 pm ET, followed by a three-episode arc of Sweden’s Sandhamn Murders from 9 pm to midnight.

To placate MHz Worldview viewers who might miss Sandhamn Murders, France’s Captain Marleau, the Swiss-Belgian Banking District, and many more shows, MHZ is now offering 50% off the first six months of MHz Choice, which costs $7.99 a month after a seven-day free trial. They just need to use promo code WORLD20 at checkout. The code, however, can’t be used for MHz Choice’s add-on channels at Amazon Prime, Xfinity X1 and The Roku Channel

  1. Sad that I will no longer be able to enjoy WHZ off air. I particularly enjoyed the international mystery programs, which did not follow the domestic run-of-the-mill plots.

  2. Why is WHZ going off the air waives? is it lack of funding, low ratings, or forest out because of competition? I really will miss the international mysteries. I enjoyed watching different police procedures from other countries. I hope you are able to bring WHZ back to American viewers.
