BVN - Dutch/Flemish TV for North America

Post by albert1212 » Thu Dec 15, 2011 11:04 am

f you want to watch Dutch / Flemish television in the
United states or Canada you can watch it for free after
you buy the satellite dish and receiver. The system
costs about $180 US not including installation of the
dish and cable into the house. I know people in my
Dutch night school that have put it in and love it.

There is no monthly charge.

You can find out more at

In the U.S. you can look at

then click on the left column BVN.

You can also watch a lot of Dutch and Belgian tv online, for example at these sites:

Uitzending gemist (Dutch public television)

De redactie (Belgian public television, mostly news)

I think they block some programs for foreign ip addresses, because of broadcasting rights, but I'm not sure.
You can probably still see quite a bit there, for free :-D
