You are watching RTV Oost channel from Netherlands. The channel's category is Other and the speaking language is Dutch.

RTV Oost is the regional broadcaster for the province of Overijssel. The channel provides television and radio broadcasts.

In the first years, Radio Oost received money from the NOS . However, it was decided in 1988 that the provinces had to pay for the broadcasters themselves. A broadcaster came to contribute, the 'omroeptientje'.

In the very beginning of RTV Oost, only Radio was made. But in September 1992 there were also experiments with TV, under the name TV Oost. The lower house agreed to a three-year trial, on the condition that citizens did not have to make financial contributions. Regional TV turned out to be a success. Even then Queen Beatrix came to visit the studio in Hengelo .

Despite the success, there were still financial problems with the regional broadcaster. In the mid-1990s, East had such a hard time that the broadcaster was almost declared bankrupt. In 1997 there was also a 'broadcaster' for regional television with which RTV Oost was saved.

From 1997, Radio Oost started broadcasting 24 hours a day, making it a fully-fledged radio station. The latest news could be read on TV Oost and information was provided via text TV and Teletext Oost.

In 1999 TV Oost said goodbye to the NOS Journaal and was therefore dependent on their own news bulletin. In the years that followed, TV Oost's broadcasting time continued to expand. Nowadays TV Oost broadcasts news, sports and informational programs 24/7 with an emphasis on regional topics.
