The Czech public broadcaster Ceske Televize (CT) will distribute all six of its channels in HD via satellite from November 15.
Along with CT1, CT2 and CT sport, it will offer CT24, CT:D and CT art, employing the services of M7 Group, via Astra at 23.5 degrees East.
CT launched a public tender for supplying the services on October 3.
After receiving interest from nine parties, two submitted offers.
CT previously paid over CZK20 million (€739,700) a year for the distribution of CT1, CT2 and CT sport in HD.
It will now pay only a third of that amount for the distribition of six channels, including two regional versions and a number of other services, among then HbbTV, EPG, teletext and Dolby audio.
