German Channels German General

ZDFneo is a German free-to-air television channel, programmed for an audience aged 18 to 45 to counter the primarily older-skewing main channels of public broadcasters ZDF and ARD. It replaced ZDF's documentary channel ZDFdokukanal on 1 November 2009.
The font "Klavika" has been used for the entire on-air design and for most programs. On 1 October 2017, the station was to receive a new on-air design and a new broadcasting logo. But the on-air redesign was carried out in the morning hours of 26 September 2017 already, despite all announcements.
ZDFneo is broadcast (along with the rest of ZDFvision) via DVB-T digital terrestrial television, receivable in most areas of Germany. It is also transmitted in DVB-C through German cable networks, and in DVB-S from the Astra 1H satellite.

Since 30 April 2012, ZDFneo has been broadcast in HD (720p). The program was initially only scaled up by 576i, since ZDFneo had no HD-capable playout at this time. Since mid-May 2015, the program is broadcast in native HD quality.
