ZDF History, Coverage, Features

The Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen, or ZDF, is a German television channel based in the city of Mainz. It was launched on April 1, 1963 as a replacement of the defunct ARD 2 channel. It is run as a non-profit institution and gets its funding via television license fees and advertising revenues. It began broadcasting 24 hours a day on October 5, 1996.

ZDF is commonly referred to as a general information channel due to the large variety of programs included in its schedule. Viewers can watch talk shows, information programs, children’s shows, TV series, documentaries, cultural programs, sports shows, and entertainment programs. 

Speaking about sports, ZDF has covered some of the top competitions in the world, such as the Olympic Games or the FIFA World Cup. On a more regular basis, ZDF has covered the German Bundesliga and other competitions via some of their dedicated sports broadcasts over the years.

ZDF started out with a Standard Definition (SD) feed, but the channel launched an HD feed to boost its availability in Germany. Both feeds might be available on select pay-tv carriers in Germany and in other European countries, which include the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, and Austria.
