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. On September 1st 2016, the website, Twitter and Facebook presences were changed to "One".
The on air rebrand took place on September 3, 2016, starting with the station identification at midnight and ending with the adjustment of the station design at 10:00. The rebrand aims to increase awareness of the station as an entertainment channel, particularly among viewers under 30.
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.
