RTL NL plans more expansion in online video

Friday 23 August 2013 | 10:20 CET | News
RTL Netherlands is looking at further ways to grow its position on the video-on-demand market, following the takeover of Videoland's VoD service two weeks ago, according to CEO Bert Habets. He was speaking at the presentation of the broadcaster's interim results, reported by Het Financieele Dagblad. The company aims to offset slowing ad receipts with more direct sales of content to consumers. Habets said he expects changes in the Dutch media landscape with the arrival of new foreign payers such as Fox and Netflix.
