German TV production company Focus TV has set up a YouTube channel offering full-length reportages.

Each week, a new video will be added. The free-of-charge service is financed by advertising.

We want to reach our viewers in many ways and easily provide them with our reportages. YouTube is the ideal channel for this purpose, said Focus TVs managing director Matthias Pfeffer.

Initially, 18 reportages are available on the Focus TV YouTube channel, for example on the economic crisis in Russia, the changes in German agriculture and security problems of smartphones.
