Google Play Reviews

    Richard Heisenbeck


    Would be really helpful, if navigation was possible by cursor keys and the lack of support for keys like play/pause is really annoying. People using the app on a smartphone or tablet might not care but on an android based TV box ort smart TV these smalll details are essential.

  2. Michael Schindler-avatar

    Michael Schindler


    riosklerose Dysfunctional. Videos stop arbitrarily and cannot be recharged. The only way to continue is to kill the app and start over again. One of the worst apps I have ever seen.

  3. Farhan Iqbal Haidary-avatar

    Farhan Iqbal Haidary


    mis So glad there's an app for this and also with offline downloads! Much better! A lot of programmes that are inspiring, informative, and entertaining with the concert ones!

  4. Danilo Delgado-avatar

    programm I just would like it to be easier to do filtered search according to the presence of captions in a specific language.

  5. Elie Guillaumes-avatar

    Elie Guillaumes


    hotel salzburg Excellent app with excellent content. Only defect : when playing a video full screen the borders on top and bottom are grey and not black which is not pleasing to the eyes and consumes battery life

  6. Ian Lang-avatar

    rielle hypertonie Personally i love the content, quite highbrow by British standards. Even better if you know a bit of French or German.

  7. Apan Panthra-avatar

    live Please allow us to choose VIDEO QUALITY into 360p/480p/720p and so on. Thank You!

    misia annua l've paid a VOD on Paypal but l can't access it. Trying to buy it again'locked the app.

  9. Alex Cata-avatar

    rin Exceptional. Unic. Incomensurabil.

  10. Ugo De Maio-avatar

    fakt Still the same longstanding issues with horizontal layouts and auto-screen rotation (with a mind of its own)... what a shame. Now "my shows" tab now stopped auto-refreshing as well, on any platform. Would be good if their DEV team actually used the app sometimes to test UX/CX ;-)

  11. Lee John Moore-avatar

    It's alright. I wish the front page would use location instead of language settings to determine which videos will be available. As an intermediate French speaker, I'd like to set the user-interface language to French but then it shows me thumbnails of videos that are mostly only available to view in France. If I set the language to English, I see thumbnails of available videos (thank you!) and most of them are French anyway... just with English subtitles. So why not just show me the same list when I set the user interface language to French? Android's location settings are there for a reason.

  12. Gloria-avatar

    Love the app but.. wish I could choose to change the quality/resolution of the videos like on YouTube. Also, wish I could add Eng subtitles when I watch French shows as German dubbed versions.

  13. Michael Alexandroff-avatar

    Michael Alexandroff


    My only suggestion is to optimize the screen layout for both pure portrait and landscape modes. As it is now the app constantly changes viewing modes for different parts of the app resulting in me having to swing my tablet around like a steering wheel to keep up with the changing views. Really annoying.

  14. Kate Hagno-avatar

    Arte is fantastic app, i'm deeply interested in its content and independent view. Unfortunately recently i experience complete blockage on Samsung smart tv, it works better on Android, but some programs lack vision. To be honest i have written to Arte about my experiences, had been demanded to write in French or German it brexit blackout? Strangly, in Poland it strated working ok

  15. Shruti Dhage-avatar

    I wish to use this application to watch French content. However, for almost all the series not available in your country 😶 very disappointed ☹

  16. Stefano Cicale-avatar

    Great App, super-great programmes. Only, it is a pity that you can see certain programmes only in France and Germany.

  17. Niall O'Reilly-avatar

    Needs more functional improvement. Long click on downloaded item ought to bring up a menu with options to play or discard. Likewise for favourites.

  18. Vladimir Premeru-avatar

    Vladimir Premeru


    Could you add ff/rewind controls (+/- 15 seconds, double tap left/right like YouTube or similar)? And, consider introducing automatic play, at least for episodes from the same series. Thank you Edit: thank you, you are right. Autoplay was not working well with my Chromecast but now it seems to be okay.

    I used to watch it on my Sony Smart TV. It worked for about half a year but since then it crashed everytime I tried to play something, althought I unistalled and re-installed a few times. Please fix this because there are so many interesting docus I want to watch.

  21. AKIS A.-avatar

    Thanks for the app and dedication to Android, covering phone, tablet and Android TV. Android TV app is very fast and has beautiful UI. Only complain on Android TV bring back the home screen recommendations channel. Thanks for the great documentaries.

  22. A Google user-avatar

    the selection looks impressive but actually nothing out of the selection is playing due to "technical problem" or "the application has stopped". i have installed french TV player and arte is playing there. so what is the problem with this app?

  23. Emir Bradaric-avatar

    ~arte tv app dear arte team, you have to definitely make it possible to fast forward by a smaller speed ,not only 2 minutes, the conventional way would be much more appreciated und resuming the videl after leavingzhe app is a must!

  24. F S-avatar

    Super app! The best tv in the world at your fingerprints

  25. Michael Trüb-avatar

    Arte produce a lot of great content. I like their style and especially their documentaries are fantastic. Often they do investigative journalism. With this app you can download content and watch it offline. Great!

  26. Romano Canevari-avatar

    Romano Canevari


    It would be great if it worked but it keeps stopping so you can't see any of the content. It used to be ok but now save yourself the trouble of downloading it, it's a waste of time. VERY BAD APP.

  27. P D-avatar

    Installed, registered but app never allowed me to do more than that. Could never login using the app

  28. Indi Luq-avatar

  34. 10kgFroschkotze-avatar



    6 stars for Arte contents, none for the app, because it crashes every time I click on a video. Needs Update urgently! Seriously!

    Both the content provided by ARTE and this application are of the highest quality.

  49. Orlando Kofler-avatar

    This channel makes people smarter. The quality of the emissions is fantastic. They are absolutely fact based, up to date and neutral. The viewer is able to create his/her own opinion based on facts without a political tendency of the producers of the broadcasts.

    Warum gibt es Arte nicht im lg webos hatte es auf meinem alten lg nun finde ich es nirgendwo. Es lässt sich nicht finden. Habe einen neuen lg 49UM7390 arte war meine lieblingsapp. Nur leider nicht installierbar auf smart tv von lg. Schade

  95. Alan-avatar

    Arte is by far the best free TV channel in Europe, and this app works well with Chromecast. Unfortunately it is only available in French and German. Interesting for its series on science, music and nature. Arte est de loin la meilleure chaine gratuite en Europe, et cet app marche bien avec Chromecast. Intéressant surtout pour ses séries science, musique et nature en playback. Disponible en Français et Allemand mais pas en Anglais même pour des videos en VO.

  96. Alexis D-avatar

    Manque de beaucoup de fonctionalitées basique comme des raccourcis pour avancer, reculer dans une vidéo, la prise en charge des boutons médias des casques audio et n'arrive pas retenir qu'aléatoirement épisode on a vu ou á reprendre lá ou on en était dans en un épisode.
