Tagesschau24 is a German free-to-air television channel owned by ARD and managed by Norddeutscher Rundfunk. It was launched on 30 August 1997 as "EinsExtra" before the introduction of its current name on 1 May 2012.[1]

It is ARD's news channel and competes with Welt and n-tv. Besides news, Tagesschau24 also broadcasts culture, sports and science shows. An HD simulcast of the channel was launched on 5 December 2013.[2]

History[edit]

The ARD digital broadcaster started on 30 August 1997 under the name EinsExtra. EinsExtra was positioned as information programme. Until 2006, the network's programming consisted largely of re-airings of morning shows, talk shows and documentaries from Das Erste Drittes Fernsehprogramm. From 2006 to 2009, the channel turned itself into an all news network, with the launch of a new-centred show, EinsExtra Aktuell . In 1 May 2012, EinsExtra Aktuell was rebranded as tagesschau24.

Logos[edit]

In May 2014, the "tagesschau" and the ARD trademark were deleted from the logo. For the HD variant, "HD" is below the 24 in the semicircle.
