Amsterdam's very own television station which lurches from financial difficulty to financial difficulty. The city council wants to get rid of it, but plans to sell it off to cable group UPC for just one euro were dropped at the last minute.

Apparently, 50% of the population watch AT5 every day. I think its great. For the traffic news, the reporter actually goes out to a trouble spot (well, with half the city dug up for road works not too hard to do). And the weather is always read out by some bumbling local. My neighbour got asked to do it after he had been to the post office. My son's primary school class did it in unison. Eat your heart out CNN.
