NPO 3 Extra is a Dutch digital theme channel of Dutch public broadcaster BNNVARA, which has been broadcasting since 31 October 2006. The channel can be received via the Internet, as well as digital theme channel via a decoder to the TV. On 10 March 2014, the channel was renamed by NPO 101, before it was called 101 TV.[1]

The channel is mainly aimed at a young audience (13–34 years) and broadcasts programmes for this target group 24 hours a day. The programmes that are broadcast partly repeats of (especially) BNN programmes and other broadcasters, but also new (experimental) programmes who still can not hear or visit an "open channel".

Interaction with the viewers should be an important element in the future types of NPO 101. In this interactive nature of the channel is also the origin of the name: 1-0-1 stands for one-on-one or "een-op-een".

101TV had an agreement with 3FM to broadcast remarkable radio fragments and whole broadcasts GI:EL. In addition, every year Serious Request is also broadcast live.

On 26 March 2018 NPO 101 was renamed by NPO 3 Extra.[2]
