There were several fixed rubrics in the program; Current articles from the web and print were critically discussed in the Press Reloaded section .

From March 21st to March 24th, 2008 Einsfestival broadcast an Easter showcase for the second time in HD via satellite and digitally in the Kabel-BW network. There were other time-limited broadcasts in HD broadcasting at IFA 2008 (August 29 to September 3) and at Christmas 2008 (December 22 to January 1, 2009). In the summer of 2009, the World Athletics Championships (August 15 to August 23) and the IFA Berlin (September 4 to September 9) were also broadcast in HD again.

Otherwise the WDR test loop could be seen.

A regular operation of Einsfestival HD was originally planned for 2014. But on June 1, 2012, the station went on the air with the regular TV program. Although it used the H.264 video codec , it was broadcast on a DVB-S transponder with some SD programs from WDR and rbTV , so that With the right software, old satellite TV cards could also receive the station. The constant bit rate - as with all HD channels - was only half as large as, for example, with Das Erste HD .
