HistoryEdit

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.[1] But the on-air redesign was carried out in the morning hours of 26 September 2017 already, despite all announcements.

DistributionEdit

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).[2] 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.

Programmes[3]Edit

ZDFneo's broadcasts mostly consists of comedy and drama series produced in-house. Shows imported from America and the United Kingdom plus a few documentaries, music shows, and movies round out the schedule.
