As a result, NLZiet’s offer has grown to 34 livestreams and to more than 100,000 on demand programmes.
“The channels of the regional broadcaster with news, culture and events can reach even more viewers through the cooperation with NLZiet,” said Gerard Schuiteman (Chairman of the Board of the Regional Public Broadcasting Foundation, RPO).
“The thirteen regional broadcasters together produce about 9.5 hours of new programmes every day. In addition to news, the wide range of programmes also consists of programmes on, for example, culture, nature, history and sports. In addition, more than 200 events and more than 70 documentaries are broadcast every year. The cooperation with NLZiet enables us to further strengthen our valuable programmes within the online domain.”
The regulation on innovation and cooperation between regional public media institutions makes this cooperation possible.
The addition of regional broadcasting to NLZiet is in line with Minister Slob’s ambition for Dutch media to cooperate more in order to provide Dutch people with a good and varied range of media.
Niels Baas, CEO NLZiet, added: “I am very pleased with this cooperation, with which the programmes of regional broadcasters will soon also be shown at NLZiet. NLZiet is therefore even more the place where all Dutch content comes together, both public and commercial”.
All thirteen regional broadcasters will soon be present in NLZiet: RTV Noord, Omrop Fryslân, NH Media, RTV Drenthe, RTV Oost, Omroep Gelderland, Omroep Flevoland, RTV Utrecht, Omroep West, Rijnmond, Omroep Zeeland, Omroep Brabant and L1 Limburg.
