RTL 24 started as a mobile TV news channel on June 5, 2008. It was available through KPN DVB-H.[1] Its broadcast as a mobile TV channel stopped when KPN ceased its DVB-H services on June 1, 2011.[2]

After a short break, RTL 24 re-launched via a mobile app for smart phones, tablet computers and other mobile devices in November 2011.[3] On January 19, 2012 the app changed into RTL Nieuws 365 and therefore the brand RTL 24 is gradually discontinuing.[4]
