A short selection of shows for those with Astra satellite dishes, or available for free and legal web streaming.

Germany's Saturday night extravaganzas are so much better than Soccer Aid. ARD, for instance has Schlagerchallenge 2021, three hours of the best schlager songs - sentimental and catchy. RTL runs with Denn sie wissen nicht, was passiert, two mystery celebrities challenge the resident team to challenges of physical or mental ability. On NDR, Kaum zu Glauben! is the show we know as I've Got a Secret, with cash. Somehow, Soccer Aid isn't looking so bad.

Later in the week, Pro7 asks How Fake is Your Love? (Tue), a version of True Love or True Lies. Spoon fans will be happy on Wednesday, as Sat.1 has a new run of The Taste, and there's a full three hours of it.

Family Drop is a family game show on (Sat). Have we got news for you - Dit was het news is back (, Thu), though no sign yet of its Belgian medical equivalent Is er een dokter in de zaal? (één, Fri). Fort Boyard concludes on TV5 on Saturday. The road to Paris begins here. Junior ESC - Wer fährt nach Paris? finds the representative from Kika (shown on screen as "Germany"). 6.30 on Friday evening.
