On 4 May 2023, RTL Group published its quarterly statement for the first three months of 2023 (Q1/2023).

Operational highlights

As of 31 March 2023, RTL Group registered 5.909 million paying subscribers for its streaming services RTL+ in Germany and Hungary, and Videoland in the Netherlands, an increase of 37.1 per cent year on year (end of March 2022: 4.309 million).

  • Paying subscribers for RTL+ in Germany increased by 38.4 per cent year on year to 4.389 million (end of March 2022: 3.172 million). The strategic partnership with Deutsche Telekom to bundle RTL+ Premium in Magenta TV continued to contribute significantly to the growth.
  • Paying subscribers for Videoland in the Netherlands grew 9.4 per cent year on year to 1.243 million (end of March 2022: 1.136 million).
  • The number of paying subscribers for RTL+ in Hungary (including RTL+ Active) was 0.277 million at the end of March 2023. RTL+ in Hungary was launched in November 2022.*

* The previous services, RTL Most and RTL Most+, were integrated into RTL+ under the packages RTL+ Light and RTL+ Active. Therefore, RTL+ has three models: a direct-to-consumer subscription model without advertising, a TV subscription model (for example via an IPTV subscription), and a registration-based advertising-funded model.
