Monday 18 February 2019 | 10:35 CET | News
The Dutch government is investigating the possibilities of making the NPO an advertising-free public broadcaster, the Telegraaf reported, citing sources in the Hague. Media Minister Arie Slob hopes to present a plan before the parliamentary elections, supported by a coalition made up of the Dutch liberals party VVD, Christian Democrats CDA, social liberal D66 and Christian party Christen Unie. This means that important strategic choices have to be made within a few weeks.
