EinsFestival programming includes documentaries, magazine programmes, films and music (rock and classical). Most of the programmes have already been broadcast by other public stations that belong to the ARD.
Since the 2004 Summer Olympics ARD and ZDF use their digital television channels to broadcast additional content about sport events like the Olympic Games or the UEFA Euro. For example, at the UEFA Euro 2008 and the 2010 FIFA World Cup they used the digital channels to broadcast different football matches taking place at the same time.
EinsFestival broadcast the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2010.
From 21 to 24 March 2008, Einsfestival began HDTV test broadcasts via satellite and digital cable (Kabel BW). The first HD programme was the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin. From 22 December 2008 to 1 January 2009, Einsfestival again broadcast HD test programmes.
