The controversy over digital TV licences appears to be coming to a head in the Czech Republic. Yesterday (June 21) the country’s leading broadcaster TV Nova published a document outlining its support for digital broadcasting. Based on the principal of what it calls the three ‘ps’ – – pokryi (coverage), penetrace (penetration) and program (programming) – the document says the station wants to protect both its audience figures and investment. It has also been reported that both Michael Garin, the head of TV Nova’s owner CME, and Fero Fenic, the director of Febio TV, have written to the Prime Minister Mirek Toplanek putting their respective cases on digital TV. Febio TV is one of six companies awarded digital licences in April lasy year that were subsequently withdrawn following protests by (amongst others) TV Nova.
