Dutch Broadcasting. The latter has acquired the brand new lifestyle 60x30' series Fitness First Class in high-definition for RTL Lounge channel. Prime claims that due to its 'its high production value, HD quality and breathtaking locations', the show has been taken up by a number of European lifestyle channels with several deals closed in summer 2014 with the likes of Nova Life in Greece, Myzen TV Ma Chaine Sport in France.
Rounding off the Netherlands-based activities, the the cultural music channel DJAZZ TV, based in the suburbs of Amsterdam, has acquired a package of music programming including such recent performances in HD as Blues Filiation – The Rhino Jazz Festival.
