One is a digital television channel from the German broadcaster ARD which launched on 30 August 1997.

One is available on satellite and cable in Germany, and in some regions by digital terrestrial. The service is also available via the Zattoo Internet television service in Germany only.

History[edit]

On 29 July 2016, WDR announced that Einsfestival would be rebranded as 'One' on 3 September 2016 to become a station for people from ages 30 to 49.[3][4] Already on September 1st 2016, the website and the performances at Twitter and Facebook were changed to "One".[5]

OnAir the conversion is done on September 3, 2016, starting with the modification of the station identification at midnight and ending with the adjustment of the station design at 10:00. The aim of the renaming is raising a stronger profile as entertainment channel and a stronger response of people under 30.[6]

Programming[edit]

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.

The management since October 2005 of EinsFestival lies with the ARD regional broadcaster Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR), based in Cologne.

EinsFestival broadcast the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2010.

One HD[edit]

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.

One HD is broadcast at 720p50 via DVB-S on Astra 1KR: 12.4215 GHz, horizontal polarisation, 27500 symbols/s symbolrate, FEC 3/4 error protection.[1]
