What is Yle API?

Welcome to Yle developer site! Yle API was opened to public in May 2015. First word vector data was published in May 2019.

The following API is currently open:

  • Teletext, which provides Yle's teletext content

At this point the public API is an experiment.

You can get access to API by reading up on the API license, and ordering API keys from here.

Summary of API license terms (please read the full license as well)

  • do not misuse (copy or distribute forward, or modify content)
  • include brand elements in your service
  • the public API is not for commercial use

If you have any questions or want to provide feedback, contact api.apua@yle.fi

Welcome as a partner in developing a new public service!
