Italian commercial broadcaster Mediaset is set to launch two new DTT channels called '20' and 'Focus' later this year, according to its advertising unit Publitalia. The company revealed that the '20' channel will take position number 20 on the national free-to-air DTT multiplex when it takes to the air in April, replacing Retecapri, acquired by Mediaset last year. The channel's content will range from classic TV series such as Battlestar Galactica and House to more recent movies such as Mad Max Fury Road and The Hunger Games, with the company looking to secure a 1.5 percent audience share.
