I thought our administrator finally came to point out the forum and group rules, but no. I guess I'll have to afterall.

I once got busted for writing a post with just one Chinese character... because I was writing it out for someone who asked how to write it :?


Yes, this was already explaiend by Elenia and Speakeasy so you can stop following me to criticise now thank you.


That's not true. No one mentioned it was the Group Rule. That's what I was pointing out. But I waited 7 days first, hoping someone else would so I didn't have to.

You didn't have to becuase Speakeasy and Elenia had explained and I said no problem, we all agreed to write in English here.

1) I didn't know so I wrote in German
2) they explained so I knew,
3) we all agreed to write in English .

THE END.

ZDF is publishing Ófærð (Trapped), a crime drama from Iceland which is their most expensive TV series at a production cost of $9,184,030. Like Cloud Atlas, it's dubbed into German with near perfect subtitles. Only available in DE-AT-CH. I'm recording the episodes and waiting for all 10 before watching but it seems promising. Link.

I suspect the ARD Mediathek is only available in Germany, but may as well mention this program on german dialects. Its more "magazine" than serious documentary.

Here in the UK I am able to watch most stuff on ARD Mediathek. Mostly I only seem to be deprived of the Swiss and Austrian Tatort.

Thank you for the documentary link, looks interesting!

Most ARD and ZDF stuff isn't geoblocked, the same with the regional channels. It was a big thing about access for Germans abroad; stuff that's shared-rights (like the mentioned Austrian and Swiss Tatort) won't be available, though. ARD, ZDF, BR, BRAlpha, and SWR all have decent apps as well (I don't know about the other regionals, but probably).
