Since going on air, RTL Televizija have been broadcasting their own daily news program. On working days, there are two news broadcasts every day, at 18:30 CET and after 23:00 CET, while the news around noon were also broadcast in the past. During the weekends, there is only one news broadcast at 18:30 CET.

Also since the very beginning, the station have broadcast several of their own productions such as daily talk show Sanja, daily soap opera Zabranjena ljubav (Forbidden Love) and daily magazine Exploziv. The talk show, Sanja, was canceled after a couple of seasons. RTL Televizija also produced the Croatian version of Big Brother, which was the most popular television program in Croatia when it aired. In 2006, the station also started to produce their own sitcom, Bibin svijet (Biba's World).

Some of the other popular reality shows from their own production included Dvornikovi (The Dvornik Family), a 2006 series similar to The Osbournes and featuring the family of the late Croatian musician Dino Dvornik, Mjenjačnica (Exchange) and Mijenjam ženu, the Croatian version of Wife Swap.

Throughout the years, the station have also broadcast a variety of American sitcoms. They are also regularly broadcasting a variety of movies, from Hollywoodmarker blockbuster to TV movies, B-movies and European cinema, including some of the movies produced in the former Yugoslav countries.


Since the very beginnings, RTL Televizija have been broadcasting daily sports news during all of their daily news programs. The majority of their sports program has otherwise always consisted of various association football matches. Between 2004 and 2007, they were regularly broadcasting the away matches of the Croatian national football team, but since 2008 these matches are again broadcast by Croatia's public broadcaster HRTmarker.

Throughout the years, RTL Televizija have also been broadcasting some other international football matches, including some of those played during the final tournament of the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup. They have also been broadcasting some club football matches, starting with FA Cup matches and eventually going on to broadcast one English Premier League match live each weekend since September 2008. Their English Premier League broadcasts are mostly focused on the clubs with at least one Croatian player.

RTL Televizija occasionally also broadcast boxing bouts and the highlights of the Red Bull Air Race events. They also bought the TV rights for all the matches of the 2009 World Men's Handball Championship, which was held in Croatia. This proved to be a big hit to Croatia's public broadcaster HRT, who even threatened to take legal action against RTL after they refused to sell them the rights to broadcast the match highlights during their news programs.
