New platform – end for ORF-TVthek: So you can still watch


When it comes to public broadcasting, a new video platform will replace the previous TV library from Wednesday – and it should be able to do much more. Read here how to get on this platform and how it works.

The ORF TV library is history. From Wednesday there will only be ORF ON, an online streaming platform in the style of Netflix & Co. What is new is not only the optical format, but above all the time that the videos remain: instead of the previous seven days, the content is now available for six months or more, you can now also watch older favorites such as “Kaisermühlen Blues” or “Phettbergs Neat Leit Show” in the archive.

All ORF channels are also available in live streams, and some programs will be available for streaming before the linear broadcast on ORF ON. The platform has been available in a test version since the beginning of this year. “With ORF ON we are starting a new streaming era,” says ORF Managing Director Roland Weißmann about the step “from a classic broadcaster to a modern public platform.”

However, if you want to watch age-restricted content during the day, you must register on ORF On, create an account and provide proof of age, for example using a passport or Austria ID. Once you arrive on the platform, there are “tips for your journey of discovery” for anyone who is not yet familiar with such surfaces.

On the internet: or as an app ORF ON
