TV Nova channels secure DTH carriage

nova-tv-newCzech TV Nova’s two newest thematic channels Smichov and Telka have secured carriage on Skylink and CS Link, the two DTH platforms operated by M7 Group.

Both Smichov and Telko were granted satellite licences on February 19 and made their debuts on Friday, March 8.

They are being distributed via Astra at 23.5 degrees East, as well as terrestrially, by cable and IPTV.

Commenting on the development, Jan Andrusko, CEO of CME-owned TV Nova, said: “Our goal as part of a multiscreen strategy is to ensure our stations are broadcast across all platforms and are made available to widest number of viewers. The inclusion of Smichov and Telka on satellite platform(s) will increase their availability in Czech households and we expect a positive impact on the audience share.”
