The new Dutch commercial channel Onze TV (Our TV) will launch on Tuesday, September 1, as part of the analogue tier on the networks of Cogas, Reggefiber, CAI and selected nets from Ziggo.

The new broadcaster is an initiative of TV producer Willie Oosterhuis, who is also responsible for the Dutch music festival Mega Piratenfestijn, where artists who are popular on Dutch pirate radio stations perform.

Onze TV will specialise in Dutch music, but also promises to bring programmes, “not just broadcasts, but also an invitation to interact and participate.”
