Tagesschau24 (own spelling tagesschau24 , until 2012 EinsExtra ) is a German digital TV station of the ARD , which is broadcast as part of the bouquet ARD Digital . The focus of Tagesschau24 is on broadcasting information and news programs, reports, documentaries and conversation programs. The lead management of Tagesschau24 within ARD lies with Norddeutscher Rundfunk , which also houses the news desk ARD-aktuell .


Tagesschau24 is a news and information program and is therefore in competition with the private news channels Welt and n-tv .

The news produced by ARD-aktuell in Hamburg is broadcast Monday to Friday at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. for 30 minutes and continuously from 11 a.m. to around 7:15 p.m. 2 p.m. 15 minutes each time and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. 30 minutes each time. The news is divided into news blocks and additional information and background reports on individual topics. During the day, every hour there are two main topics and an economic section as well as daily sports news. The daily news is broadcast within 100 seconds within these broadcasting channels, provided that the news continues after halfway through. If a Tagesschau is broadcast on the first on the hour, it is also broadcast on Tagesschau24 via simulcast. Often it is not faded out at the end, but the camera first drives to the studio. During this camera maneuver, which serves the transition, one sees the change of speaker or table change of the speaker and three-dimensional images in the background. This trip can always be seen when an unforeseen event has occurred, but it can always be seen when it is first issued at 9:00 a.m.


The digital channel of the ARD started on August 30, 1997 under the name EinsExtra . EinsExtra was set up as an information program. Until 2006, the station consisted largely of reruns of magazines, discussion programs and documentaries from the first and third television programs . From 2006 to 2009, the transmitter was gradually converted into a news channel, for which a live news line was started during the day under the name "EinsExtra aktuell", initially with half-hour issues Monday to Friday at 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm : 00 am and 6 pm, from the beginning of 2008 then continuously from 9 am to 7 pm, extended to 8 pm since June 2009. In addition, broadcasting on weekends and public holidays from 12:00 to 18:00 was introduced in August 2010. EinsExtra Aktuell has been called Tagesschau24 since May 1, 2012 and will continue to be broadcast on the station of the same name. An HD simulcast of the station has been broadcast via satellite since December 5, 2013 .
