According to the Media Law, public broadcasters are obligated to join NICAM. This lawful requirement does not apply to film- and DVD distributors. Nevertheless, practically the entire film and DVD sector uses Kijkwijzer. VOD providers, too - including Pathé Thuis and Netflix - have affiliated with NICAM and use Kijkwijzer, even though they are not legally obligated to do so.
