RTL II launches catch-up service


German commercial general interest channel RTL II is offering its viewers the ability to watch missed TV programmes through the internet, free of charge and in full length.

The advertising-financed catch-up offer, available as part of RTL II’s website at w/w/w.rt//l2.d//e, comprises the complete episodes of numerous docu-soaps and report-type formats. Current episodes are available immediately after their TV transmission with older series accessible from the archive. Over the coming months the offer will be expanded.

After RTL and VOX, RTL II is the third free-to-air channel in RTL Group’s German channel portfolio to provide an internet-based video-on-demand service.
