Babylon Berlin Coming to Merged MHz Choice & Topic Streamer


Kino Lorber’s MHz Choice and Topic streaming services are merging, and the landmark German series Babylon Berlin is coming to the combined platform next month.

The resulting service for the U.S. and Canada under the MHz Choice brand will combine European dramas and mysteries with Nordic noir crime and thrillers. MHz Choice will bring the first season of Babylon Berlin to subscribers beginning in April. The fourth season, never before seen in North America, will premiere June 25.

Existing MHz Choice and Topic subscribers will transition to the new service over the next several months.

“MHz Choice is now the ultimate destination for those who love international series, and especially European mysteries and Nordic noir,” said Ed Carroll, president of Kino Lorber Media Group. “Babylon Berlin is one of the crown jewels of television, a period drama whose timeless themes transcend geography and language in the way shows like A French Village, Downton Abbey or Mad Men have all around the world. We anticipate our subscribers will enjoy the early seasons of Babylon Berlin as well as the premiere of season four.”
