RTL Telekids is the name of a digital television channel for children. The channel is operated by RTL Nederland and can be received through cable. In addition, RTL Telekids is broadcasting as a youth block on television channel RTL 8 during daytime. Like the rest of the Dutch RTL family RTL Telekids is officially a Luxembourg channel that does not have to adhere to the Dutch media law. As Luxembourg has no real regulator, the channel is also not monitored.

Youth block

On 19 August 2010 RTL announced that the name RTL Telekids would be used for a new youth block on RTL 8. A big difference with the former programme Telekids is that the broadcast is no longer done by a presenter from the studio.

Originally RTL Telekids would start on 4 October 2010. However, on 1 October 2010, there was a collision place on the A59 where a woman and three children were killed in a car accident on their way to the Efteling, where the shooting would take place for the programme, De Schatkamer, which is part of RTL Telekids. Out of respect for the victims' families the launch of RTL Telekids had been postponed for two weeks until 18 October 2010.[1]

Digital channel

The digital channel RTL Telekids can be received through Ziggo and Caiway since 3 September 2012, also it can be received through KPN and Telfort since 1 July 2015. It is the third digital channel of RTL.
