BulletinsEdit

On weekdays, at 6:30am and on the hour and half hour between 7am & 9am, RTL Onbijtnieuws (RTL Breakfast News) bulletins are broadcast on RTL 4. An hourly daytime service of 15-minute bulletins airs on RTLZ between 8am and 5:30pm, featuring business news round-ups and 'normal' news.

Seven days a week, three evening bulletins air on RTL4 in the form of a short 6pm bulletin, a main evening 20-minute programme at 7:30pm and a 10-minute late night bulletin at varying times. The Sunday edition of the 7:30pm news also features a short review of the past week's events.

In addition, RTL Nieuws produces an hourly daytime service called RTL Z combining news bulletins and business & financial updates on weekdays. A topical magazine programme, Editie NL, is also broadcast each weekday evening on RTL 4.
