Zattoo Free is our free service, available to all users in Germany and Switzerland. Through advertising it is possible for us to offer our service free of charge and thus provide you with the live streams of your favorite TV channels on various platforms (e.g. smartphones, tablets, PCs, connected TV apps).
In order to ensure investments in service and continuous improvement of our product, it is necessary to display ads, e.g. when channel switching. Moreover, we clarify the rights for content. For some of these rights, a fee needs to be paid to the rights holder, which is calculated on the basis of the number of users. By using our service, streaming costs and costs for content arise. These costs are partly financed by advertising revenues. Another part of the costs can be financed by subscriptions.
Of course you are free to choose between our free service Zattoo Free or our paid service Zattoo Premium / Ultimate.
Zattoo Advertising in the On Demand section
Please note that the On Demand section is also completely financed by advertising. If you watch a show from On Demand (some On Demand content can also be accessed via the Highlights/ start page), you will receive Zattoo ads despite your Premium / Ultimate subscription. This is due to licensing reasons.
On all other streams, you will not be displayed any Zattoo ads when starting a show or switching channels, if you are subscribed to Premium / Ultimate. Of course, all other advertising broadcasted by the TV channel will still be shown.
You will continue to see the advertising that the individual stations broadcast with a Premium / Ultimate subscription.
