According to Parabola, FTV Prima now holds separate satellite, DTT and internet licences for Prima Krimi but will only be able to distribute the channel in the Czech Republic.
Prima Krimi will be on air for 18-24 hours daily and offer viewers mostly drama produced outside Europe.
As previously reported by Broadband TV News, FTV Prima registered the name Prima Krimi and sent the necessary requests to the RRTV in early January.
It already operates a number of thematic channels in addition to the flagship service Prima.
They include Prima Cool, Prima Love, Prima Zoom and Prima Max.
