RTL Nederland has received the Machiavell Award 2014, because “RTL has proven over the past 25 years to be more than just a large commercial broadcaster. In many ways innovative, bold and above all binding, according to the jury report. “RTL has been the hunter and forerunner of a series of new program formats. From reality shows to financial-economic news: thanks to RTL, the Dutch television viewer has enjoyed an innovative and varied offer over the past 25 years. On other channels as well”.
