The ARTE app will let viewers watch documentaries, programmes and concerts for up to 90 days after their TV broadcast, while the ZDF will give access to some 35,000 videos and programme highlights.

The free apps join the likes of Red Bull TV, Vevo, GoPro and Youtube on the device – which is the equivalent of Sky’s Now TV box in the UK.
