Dutch public broadcasters have launched a website where refugees and newcomers to the Netherlands can access on-demand Dutch television programmes and videos. The service, called Net in Nederland (New to the Netherlands), features a selection of Dutch programmes, including the 6pm daily news, subtitled in English and Arabic.

Refugees can use this site to begin their integration into Dutch society while they wait in the refugee centre. As well as programming, the site offers useful information and links to refugee organizations and initiatives.

The service is an initiative of broadcasters AVRO TROS, BNN VARA, KRO-NCRV, VPRO, EO, MAX and HUMAN, and is supported by NTR and the NPO.

Refugee Start Force collaborates with Net in Nederland and assists to promote the platform amount refugees and other refugee organizations.
