Spiegel TV, the TV production subsidiary of weekly German news magazine "Der Spiegel", has made its online TV channel Spiegel.TV available on the Apple iPad.

Through the new free-of-charge application, the 24 hour service offering reports, documentaries and other programmes on current issues can be received on Apple's tablet-PC.
Viewers can adjust the on-screen line-up according to their personal preferences trough the menus "topics" and "channels". The "topics" section contains, for example, documentaries complementing the title story of the "Der Spiegel" print edition each week.
In the "channels" section, viewers can directly access series such as "History", "People" or "Auto-Mobiles". Through the playlist, they can compose a TV schedule reflecting their individual taste.
