I hope this question isn't off-topic, since this website is about language-specific questions. This seemed like the site closest to my post. :)

For the purpose of exposing myself to the spoken German language, I want to watch the news in German, as a complement to my grammar, vocabulary and reading endeavors.

I am looking for (video) episodes of a news channel, which reports world-, financial- and economic news on a daily basis in German.

I took a look on a few news sites (zdf, dw) but have not yet been able to pin down the link to a page listing the "missed episodes" of a news channel of my aforementioned preference. That is, with video.

You can watch the past episodes of the Tagesthemen (en.wiki) here:


autoplays the current episode, below you can find the older ones.

Also, if you are interested in the Austrian variety of German have a look at the ZIB / Zeit im Bild (en.wiki) here:


Please be aware that for ... reasons ... the episodes are usually only available for some days.


I would suggest:

German Euronews channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCACdxU3VrJIJc7ujxtHWs1w

Deutsche Welle: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMIgOXM2JEQ2Pv2d0_PVfcg

But also Arte DE if you're more into docos: https://www.youtube.com/user/ARTEde


Have a look at Youtube: tagesschau They are from ARD, the first national Television station in Germany
