Why ARTE is now available in English, Spanish and Polish?

ARTE in English, ARTE en español and ARTE po polsku are a part of the ARTE Europe initiative which is a project that ARTE is running with financial support from the European Union. It involves broadcasting a selection of ARTE’s programmes on the Internet, with English, Spanish and Polish subtitles.
It is the first cultural international broadcast of this kind in Europe.
As linguistic diversity is a part of European’s cultural richness, ARTE Europe initiative aims at giving European citizens a larger choice of high-quality programmes.

With our new offer now available in five languages, ARTE can reach out up to 60% of European citizens, which can now have access to our programmes in their native language.

Why does entire French and German offer not available with English, Spanish or Polish subtitles?

ARTE in English, ARTE en español and ARTE po polsku offer only a selection of ARTE’s programmes. They comprise 600 hours of programmes per year, free of charge, and feature the channel’s flagship magazine shows, documentaries and reports. In addition, they offer a selection of live recorded performances from ARTE Concert.

Why are some videos unavailable in certain countries?

All the programmes of ARTE in English, ARTE en español and ARTE po polsku are available throughout Europe. Depending on distribution rights over the half of the offer is also available globally.

Apart from this website, where else can I watch ARTE?

ARTE is rebroadcast beyond France and Germany on many satellites and cable networks in Europe and worldwide. A large portion of the channel’s programmes is also available in Europe and (depending on distribution rights) around the world on the ARTE+7 catch-up platform.
Besides the website, ARTE in English, ARTE en español and ARTE po polsku programmes are also available on the ARTE applications for mobiles and tablets and for connected television sets.
It is our priority to increase ARTE’s scope in Europe. To get more details, see our distribution map by carrier, language and country, which is available here.

Why do videos sometimes trip?

When you click on Play, the video player determines which of the three image-quality levels will work best.
If your bandwidth (which depends on the operator) changes while you are playing the video, the initial image quality may no longer be suitable. In that case, unfortunately, you will need to test the three image qualities one by one.
We are doing all we can to provide the best image quality, but sometimes low Internet speed or bandwidth may affect the quality of the image.
