RTL Deutschland is launching dooloop, an advertising funded music channel for smart TVs.

The new channel can be called up while watching RTL or Vox by pressing the red button for the HbbTV delivered service. This is the eight moving picture service for smart TVs started by RTL.

Dooloop is available in lean back and lean forward modes and can be personalised by the viewer.

Dooloop is the second non-linear music channel from the broadcaster. RTL already has Clipfish Music available via HbbTV.
