What is currently on TV and which programs are still waiting for you? The following overview of the TV program tonight shows you what ARD, ZDF, SAT.1, Pro Sieben, RTL, VOX & Co. have to offer. Today’s launch of RT DE shows that the usual television landscape is not as static as expected. After years of appropriate planning, the controversial project has now been implemented and began broadcasting on December 16 at 7 a.m.

New station RT DE: that’s behind it

That is what the two abbreviations RT DE mean Russian foreign TV station RT, formerly known as “Russia Today”. Called RT Deutsch up until the previous year, the German TV channel went on the air today and aims to provide its audience with “a fresh and pragmatic view of current affairs” with live news, documentaries and entertainment formats. In addition, “the Russian perspective on important events” should be brought closer to the audience, as DWDL reports.

The problem: According to the DWDL, the so-called “Russian perspective” can hardly be distinguished from Kremlin propaganda. In fact, the new television station RT DE is to be financed with 30 million euros from the Russian state budget. In contrast to German formats, such as Deutsche Welle, which are also financed from taxpayers’ money, RT DE is not organized under public law with non-state control bodies.

“The new news television made in Moscow meets expectations, or rather: fears absolutely.”

RT DE still without a German broadcasting license

It was precisely this lack of distance from the state that led, among other things, to RT failing its broadcast license application in Luxembourg in August. The media authority MABB, which is responsible for broadcasting in Germany, has not yet received any application.

The RT DE content currently being produced in Moscow will be broadcast live and via satellite from Serbia to Germany. The German subsidiary RT DE Productions GmbH in Berlin is already responsible for the evening news as well as documentaries and panel discussions. From 2022 onwards, production will take place entirely in a studio in Berlin-Adlershof.
