Uncovering the soul of a country, through an intrinsic and  honest connection, is what vpro and its presenters do best.

These 3 channels are vpro's first steps towards the international community, but vpro already plans on developing other channels, like music channels with 3voor12 and VrijeGeluiden, but also to expand the range of subtitles to German and more.
