The ORF TVthek application has brought the ORF’s web-based video platform to Android and iOS. Over 100 programs are available on demand for up to 7 days after they were originally broadcast on TV.

 In addition to video on demand, the app also offers a live stream of current sports events as well as most of the information and magazine programs produced by the broadcaster. Equally, the app serves as an entry point to the ORF’s extensive media archive, which provides a broad range of in-depth material on contemporary and historical topics. The ORF TVthek app offers a series of practical features for optimum usability and a unique television experience on smartphone and tablet. In April 2017 the app was extended by Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Apple TV. Fullscreen or embedded video playback, split screen and picture-in-picture function for iPad, links to other episodes of each program, and a choice of segments in case a user doesn’t always want to watch a program in full, all ensure maximum flexibility. And different quality levels guarantee uninterrupted playback—even when network quality is inconsistent. Subtitles and transcripts make the app and hence all programs fully accessible to all users. This wide-ranging app is also available on Google’s Chromecast, Amazon Fire, and Xbox.
