Stream TV channels with the best VPN provider

Back in 1963, ZDF or Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen, started as a small and modest channel. It slowly grew into one of the biggest German broadcasters. Since 1996, ZDF has been broadcasting 24 hours a day, which allowed them to expand their network.

The channel now boasts content ranging from:

  • News: heute, heute journal, heute Xpress
  • Entertainment: Wetten, dass..?, heute-show, ZDF-Fernsehgarten, Die Helene Fischer Show
  • Documentaries: ZDF-History, ZDFzeit
  • Krimi TV series: Die Rosenheim-Cops, Der Kriminalist, Leipzig Homicide, Stubbe – Von Fall zu Fall
  • TV shows: Bettys Diagnose, Bad Banks, Familie Braun
  • Talks shows: Markus Lanz, Maybrit Illner, Dunja Hayali
  • Quiz shows: Der Quiz-Champion, Das Spiel beginnt
  • Kids’ shows: Löwenzahn, Siebenstein, Pippi Langstrumpf

No matter what you’re keen on watching, ZDF Mediathek surely has some content for you. Although they focus on live TV, some of their content is also available on demand, so you can catch up on shows you might have missed.

But don’t grab the remote yet. Unfortunately, the entire ZDF content is only available in Germany. Don’t let this get in the way of your binge-watching. CyberGhost VPN can help you here.
