ARTE is a European public-service cultural television channel that targets audiences from different cultural backgrounds, in particular French and German.

The ARTE channel offers an exceptionally broad spectrum of topics and programme genres. Its originality lays in the fact that it targets audiences from different cultural backgrounds, in particular French and German.  It is composed of three entities: the headquarters in Strasbourg and two Members responsible for programme production and delivery, which are ARTE France in Paris and ARTE Deutschland TV GmbH in Baden-Baden.

The founding fathers of ARTE believed that a joint television channel should bring French and German citizens closer on a cultural level and promote cultural integration throughout Europe. Creating a television channel for two audiences was a first in television’s history and is still an exception in the global TV market to this date.

The objective of the consortium is to create and produce television programmes of a cultural and international nature in the broadest sense, to be broadcast by itself or by other channels, via satellite or any other medium. These programmes aim to promote mutual understanding and unity among the peoples of Europe.
