The Dutch Public Broadcasting (NPO) has added a new function to the NPO Start website: NPO Samen. This allows users with several at the same time to watch an NPO program and chat directly about it via webcam.

Although the corona measures are gradually easing, many Dutch people stay at home more often. That is why NPO decided to come up with a new application that can be used via the computer and laptop for at least the next three months.

How does it work?

  • Go to to find the program you want to watch with others, turn on your webcam and click on the 'Watch together' icon.
  • Fill in your name. Then the NPO-together environment follows.
  • Turn on the sound of your webcam and invite others by sharing the link via Whatsapp, email or social media.
  • The others join via this link. You can view up to four cameras simultaneously.
