RTL Nederland is launching a premium version of its catch-up TV service RTL XL.
Charging 3.99 a month, viewers will have unlimited access to all content on the portal, which includes programming from the past twelve months. Until now, RTL XL offered an advertising supported free service as well as a T-VOD service with prices ranging between 0.99 and 2.99 per title.
RTL XL continues to be part of the common S-VOD portal NLziet, which costs 10 a month for unlimited access to the catch-up services of Dutch public broadcaster NPO (NPO Plus), RTL XL and Kijk from SBS Broadcasting. A subscription to NL ziet costs 7.95 per month.
RTL Nederland is also majority shareholder in Videoland, which offers both S-VOD and T-VOD services.
