08.05.07 . 'The Netherlands never to withdraw from Eurovision'
"Let me be very clear: NOS will never cut off the electricity," NOS-boss Gerard Dielessen says. Although there has been speculated about a possible Eurovision withdrawal of the Netherlands, "we will continue participating as long as it exists, even if that means for the next fifty years," Dielessen assures.
Lately, the participation of the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest has been subject of discussion at Dutch broadcaster NOS. It would not fit in the broadcaster's profile and be too expensive. The costs should not be exaggerated, according to Dielessen. "For NOS, it's not more expensive than a sports game," he says. "It will only be expensive if we win and have to organise it."

The high viewing figures of the show make it worth broadcasting it, Dielessen thinks. "One and a half up to two million people watch it. If we reach the final, another two million watch it. You can compare it with a good football game." Dielessen assures that the Netherlands will keep participating in the Eurovision Song Contest until it stops existing.
