DW is a household name in countries like Tanzania and Nigeria, where listeners have turned to our radio programming for news that they can rely on. Due to low-bandwidth around the region, offline and text modes for better accessibility remain one of the most important features for this region. Access to already established audio (radio) programs is also a priority. In addition, our content in 30 languages makes it easier for local audiences to get the news they want. The app also offers direct access to video content and live streams. With programming like DW News – which offers a regional focus for African issues – and Eco@Africa, DW ensures that viewers get information they need.
Our TV highlights are available on the app via live stream and on-demand, ensuring that viewers in Asia can access content whenever and wherever they want.
