How to watch German Holiday classics in the US

What would Christmas be without fairy tales, Holiday movies and, of course Sissi!  They belong to the Christmas season, like the Advent calendar, Christmas cookies or the festively decorated Christmas tree. Whether they are new films or old productions from GDR times – the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in particular are still very popular. If you also want to watch German films and TV classics while living abroad – especially at Christmas time – we might have a simple solution for you: YouTV.

YouTV is the first and only German legal online TV recorder accessible worldwide. German expats around the world can access almost the entire German TV program (50 German TV channels including a huge variety of children’s programs) and record individual shows. By recording a show, it will be stored in a cloud and can be played back regardless of time zones at any time. Of course, this is also possible in HD on your SmartTV or your Roku device. You can also activate subtitles which can also be helpful for kids just learning English.

How does it work?

It’s easy to use:  you can program single TV shows or record whole series, or channels. You can also record shows in the “kids filter” with one click continuously. After having been recorded, shows can be accessed from a bunch of apps or website for 1 – 300 days.

What does it cost?

The price starts at about 5.99€ (6,59 USD) monthly and goes up to 14,99€ (16,49 USD) for the family package.

Special offer: With the CityKinder sign up link you are receiving 3 months of free trial.

The registration requires no credit card and no paid subscription (or similar) will be applied after the three months.

To make sure you don’t miss any of your favorites while discovering some new ones we put together a few hightlights for you:
