The new Czech channel Seznam.cz TV will launch in time for the country’s presidential election, due to take place on January 12/13.
According to Rozhlas.cz, it will be distributed terrestrially on CRa’s regional multiplex (8) and transition network (12), as well as by cable (UPC) and DTH (Skylink).
It is also expected to be included in O2TV, the service operated by the Czech incumbent O2.
Furthermore, the new channel will also have an HbbTV element in its output.
Seznam.cz TV will be available to operators in both SD and HD, though for capacity reasons terrestrial TV viewers will only be able to watch the service in SD.
Seznam.cz is a web portal and search engine and has operated in the Czech Republic since 1996.
