Kassa (Cash Register) is a consumer television program produced by VARA, which was created by and is hosted by Brecht van Hulten in the Netherlands. The program focuses on consumer affairs, reviewing and testing products, and also doing investigative reporting on issues with products or services. VARA also produces spinoffs of Kassa, such as a daily internet program called "Consumentennieuws" (Consumer News), Kassa 3 - aimed more towards youth audiences, and Radio Kassa, a consumer news talk program.

In 2004, the VARA also received the Dutch "Spin-Award" prize from the general public in the Netherlands. On 29 September 2007 Kassa won an award in the Prix Italia for the show's interactive web content.

Xbox 360 investigations[edit]

In February 2007, Kassa brought significant media attention when it aired an investigative report on disc scratching problems with Microsoft's Xbox 360 video game console.[1][2]
