RTL Netherland is all set to merge its two OTT platforms Videoland and RTL XL into one SVOD platform. Recently RTL was in news for terminating its catch-ump service RTL Gemist which was available in several smart TVs and platforms such as KPN and Ziggo.
Sven Sauve, the CEO, RTL Netherland, quoted, “Our video on demand activities have taught us a lot about ‘fan centric’ working. It is about continuous testing while you are developing something, learning from your mistakes and sometimes it means to kill your darlings if that is in the interest of the consumer. By talking to our subscribers, we know that they want to have one place where they can see everything and where a lot of attention is paid to Dutch content. This year we are taking the step of merging all our online activities.”
