ZDF is a state-owned German TV channel that broadcasts live entertainment, news, politics, and sports programs. ZDF offers live online streaming of its programs in Germany. If you are a German expat working in France, Denmark, Austria, USA, UK, Switzerland, or Luxembourg, you cannot watch ZDF due to the fact that it is geoblocked outside Germany. To overcome this geographic restriction and watch ZDF abroad, use Unlocator. To begin with, sign up with Unlocator for free.
