According to B92, Supernova is a brand name used jointly by the cable operators Radijus vektor, Kopernikus, Masko, Telemark sistems and AVCOM.
In a statement on a distribution offer for the channels, Supernova says that it was many times more unfavourable than that currently held by Radijus vector and Kopernikus Technology, adding that United Media did not interfere with the Supernova brand during 2019, when it received over €4 million from the operators employing the brand.
The statement also says that United Media wants to limit Supernova both territorially and in terms of the number of users to prevent tens of millions of euros in penalties by extending the network to Novi Sad, Kragujevac and other locations, in violation of the law.
Significantly, Supernova also says it accepted the main element of United Media’s offer, namely the price of €20 million and contract length of three years, with its only demand being that for the text of the contract to be the same as previous ones.
Furthermore, it says that it has contacted both United Media and its owner BC Partners in the hope of finding a compromise solution.
