Super RTL

Super RTL is a Cologne-based German television network operated by RTL Disney Fernsehen GmbH & Co. KG. It was the second German television channel aimed mostly at children (the first was Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network). It was launched in 1995 as a joint venture between RTL Group predecessor company Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Télédiffusion (formally the Luxembourg Broadcasting Company (Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Radiodiffusion), which was a member of European Broadcasting Union respectively), and The Walt Disney Company.

During the daytime and early evening until 8:15 pm, Super RTL exclusively airs children's programming through it's Toggo block. Super RTL used to air a large number of Nickelodeon shows as well during the time that rights owner Viacom did not operate their own children's channel in Germany (1998–2005), but this supply dried up with the re-introduction of Nickelodeon to Germany in 2005.

In prime time, Super RTL mostly repurposes older RTL Television series or airs family-branded, inexpensive entertainment shows.

In 2014, with the launch of a free-to-air version of Disney Channel, Super RTL lost the rights to air Disney programming. Dispite this, Disney continues to hold a joint stake in the channel.

Programs for children

Toggo is the name of a block for children on Super RTL, and shows for teenagers in the early-evening. Until 2014, the block had a share of Disney programmes, due to Super RTL being a joint venture.

Disney programs:


TOGGO TV is an own production of Super RTL. The motto is: “You can switch me on” (, Ihr könnt mich mal...EINSCHALTEN!". In every show there are famous German singers and bands and at the end of every season a so called “TOGGO star” is elected, a child, who has done or can do something special. The show is presented by Nina Moghaddam, Paddy Kroetz and the Haselhörnchen (a puppet which looks like a squirrel).

The TOGGO-camp

The camp is organised by the German teenage journey operator Ruf. There are several camps in Germany, for example, in the Schwarzwald and on the island Rügen. It is a holiday camp for children between 8 and 13.

Evening programs

In the evening Super RTL mostly shows programs which were on RTL before. These are shows, comedy, thrillers, series and international films and cartoons, but no Blockbusters.

Disney Series:

At night (Monday to Friday from 3am to 6am and Saturday and Sunday from 2am to 6am) Super RTL shows "Fun-Night", an interactive show, where people can send SMS-greetings or control a computer game. During this time in Austria a log fire is broadcast, which appeared on the channel in Germany until 1995.
