Initial offerings include the popular sketch comedy “Little Britain”, in which award-winning comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams play a variety of roles. As strange eccentrics, charming lunatics, or bizarre misfits, they entertain with their unique brand of outrageous British humor. Internet users can also watch the mysterious “Doctor Who” travel through time free of charge thanks to ‘Videoload free’. In this British cult series, the nameless Doctor moves through history in a traditional English phone box, and has influenced generations of British television authors and viewers. Together with many other top BBC series such as “Life On Mars”, “Spooks”, and “Coupling”, “Doctor Who” will finally be available to German fans, thanks to ‘Videoload free’.

Popular niche formats from DMAX will brighten up any boys’ night: “The Ludolfs – Four Brothers at the Scrapyard” has won over a huge legion of fans in Germany. The brothers have just been nominated for a prestigious Adolf Grimme TV award and can be seen on ‘Videoload free’. Car tuning fans can look forward to “Tuning Alarm! Jo Tricks It Out” with Jo Scholz. Hamburg’s tattoo team from the “Jungbluth” studio will also leave a lasting impression: “Tattoo – A Family Leaves Its Tracks” is guaranteed to get under your skin.

The German crime novella “The Secret of My Father” will bring suspense in series starting in mid-March. This Studio Hamburg production plays at a soaps and perfumes manufacturer. It centers on 27-year-old Jule (Anna Voy Kunith), who gets wind of a family secret and has to track it down.
