The founder, Lars Halter, launched a Kickstarter project, where you can make a donation in support of Frühstück TV – and get a nice reward. The best thing: Your credit card will only be charged if the entire project gets funded – that means: you are only donating if Frühstück TV get off the ground. That´s a guarantee that your money will not be wasted. You can support the project by following this link:

On the Kickstarter page, you will find a 10 minute promo video for Frühstück TV. Have a look and see what the show is all about. Keep in mind: this is just a promo, filmed on a low budget, with no musical guest and no audience – all that will come later, once we are going live. One thing, however, will not change: the location: Frühstück TV will broadcast live from the Bierhaus NYC.


Frühstück TV wants to establish a show with all the content y
