Yle Areena is Yle’s main channel when broadcasting domestic programmes overseas. Other available content can be found on the yle.fi website.

Our programme content is available in Yle Areena for watching and listening abroad as follows:

  • nearly all of the news and current affairs programmes
  • all of Yle’s radio channels live, apart from the digital radio service Yle Mondo
  • 82 % of the domestic programmes broadcasted by Yle

These radio and tv programmes are available to viewers abroad:

  • Yle Areena's tv programmes available abroad
  • All Yle's radio channels live
  • In Yle Areena such programmes as Puoli seitsemän, Uusi päivä and Kuningaskuluttaja can be seen from anywhere in the world. However, the copyright laws restrict the transmission of series, children’s programmes and drama. Programmes can be watched during a certain time period. This is also being regulated by the copyright laws.

    New and old programmes are added to Yle Areena continuously. This way we can improve the service given to Finns living abroad.

    Yle’s teletext service Teksti-TV is accessible abroad via the internet and mobile devices.

    Tv Finland

    In Sweden Yle’s television programmes can be followed via mashup service channel TV Finland in antenna and cable networks. The signal sent through the Nacka, Västerås and Uppsala transmitters is free to be viewed in the coverage areas listed above.

    Other service providers and operators can also take TV Finland as a part of their programme offerings.
