The Dutch all talk TV channel Het Gesprek has signed a distribution agreement with EuroNews to share an analogue channel across all major Dutch cablenets. Het Gesprek will be available for nine hours a day between 16.00 and 01.00 hours, with Euronews filling the additional time.
The new contract gives EuroNews access to two networks – Amsterdam and Rotterdam – where it was not available in analogue. On the other hand, the Dutch talk channel can now be seen on most cablenets from UPC, Casema, Multikabel and @Home. The two channels now have a potential reach of 75% of all Dutch homes.
Both channels will remain available as 24 hour digital channels on these networks. In addition, Het Gesprek is also available on the Canal Digitaal Satelliet DTH platform and talks are under way to secure a place on the KPN Digitenne DTT network.
