Its easy too use, works fine except for the offline mode. Not possible to download anything for offline watching. Network not available. Has gotten a little better lately.

I used to like the ZDF Mediathek App. However they applied some changes recently, and since then the "Untertitel" functionality does not work or it simply does not appear to any program. It was a very good functionality for me and many others who like the ZDF content and use it to learn a bit of German. If they fix this, I will definitely change my review.

Usability is ok. Unfortunately when streaming through chromecast, live tv is constantly interrupted and in football games audio comes before picture. I saw in a separate review that issues with Chromecast were solved, I uninstalled and reinstalled the app to be sure before testing it again. Summary: issues with chromecast remain. 2 years after feedback, nothing has improved
