WorldTV goes German

Posted by on Oct 11, 2008 in Change Log | 1 comment

WorldTV has added German to its list of supported languages. This joins English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian and Russian. It’s always been our goal to make WorldTV a truly global network and with 80,000 user channels from 188 countries, we are well on our way to that goal. We’d like to extend a warm ‘Wilkommen’ to all German speakers using WorldTV!

WorldTV ist nun auch auf Deutsch verfügbar. Diese erweiter nun die vorhandenen Sprachen Englisch, Französisch, Spanisch, Portugiesisch, Ukrainisch und Russisch. Es war immer das Ziel von WorldTV ein globales Netzwerk zu erstellen, und mit über 80`000  Nutzern aus 188 Ländern, sind wir unserem Ziel schon etwas näher gerückt. Somit möchten wir alle unserer Deutschen Benutzer Willkommen heissen auf WorldTV.

To access our different language options simply select the drop down menu on the Home Page , on our player, or in the Channel Editor.

Um die verschiedenen Sprach-Optionen einzustellen, benutze  bitte das „drop-down“ Menu auf unserer Homepage, im Player oder im Channel Editor.

You can also view channels from German speaking countries or click on the World Page map and choose the country to watch the channel of your choice.

Du kannst dir auch Channels aus anderen deutschsprachigen Ländern ansehen oder klicke auf die Weltkarte und such dir ein Land aus um einen Channel deiner Wahl zu sehen.

More languages will follow in the future and we will of course keep you updated.

Wir sind stets Bemüht, unsere Homepage  noch in weiteren Sprachen anzubieten und werden euch selbstverständlich auf dem Laufenden halten.

1. Paul Newman – worldtv.com/paulnewman

The world without Paul Newman is an emptier place.  The screen legend epitomized “cool” for generations of film lovers but who according to those who knew him was a generous, caring and unpretentious man who shied away from the publicity of his global fame and instead used it on many occasions to help others. Survived by his wife of 50 years Paul Newman was a class act and a true gent.


2. Animes Streaming Net – worldtv.com/animes_streaming_.net

We came across this channel after seeing our super new WorldTV embeddable player on French Animation website animes-streaming.net The channel features a selection of Manga style cartoons in their original Japanese format but with French Subtitles for the more discerning french (or French speaking) animation aficionado.

3. Mr. Bean – worldtv.com/mr._bean

Hailing for the UK Mr Bean is a worldwide comedy phenomenon co written by and starring the inimitable Rowan Atkinson of Black Adder fame.  Harking back to an age of silent comedy the buffoonery of Bean manages to amuse millions, passing unnoticed through cultural boundaries with its simple laughter evoking formula. Mr Bean described by Atkinson is “a child in a grown man’s body”
