SPIEGEL TV has been on air since 1988 and was the first media brand on private-sector television. With its frequently awardwinning productions, SPIEGEL TV has set new standards for up-to-date television journalism, collecting for example the Grimme Prize, the Golden Lion, the German Television Prize as well as various medals at the New York Festivals. What started out with SPIEGEL TV MAGAZIN more than two decades ago has grown into a company with its own television channels that collaborates with numerous public- and private-sector partners. SPIEGEL GESCHICHTE and SPIEGEL TV WISSEN are SPIEGEL TV’s two successful pay-TV channels. Since 2009, SPIEGEL GESCHICHTE has been broadcasting a full-range channel via the pay-TV operator Sky. SPIEGEL TV WISSEN offers round-the clock programming on interesting topics from the field of societal and cultural affairs, science and technology, as well as human beings and nature. The web TV channel SPIEGEL.TV demonstrates the possibilities of television on the Internet. Since June 2011, SPIEGEL.TV has been broadcasting an editorially curated programme round the clock: a livestream of high-quality documentaries and riveting reports. In addition, SPIEGEL.TV offers the functionality of a media library.
