Telly, for instance, has issued a statement in which it says that it was “eventually forced to accept the required conditions”. That is why it has had to readjust its prices and started preparing restrictions on re-advertising from March 1 “although we do not like such a situation and we would never accept it voluntarily”.
Meanwhile, Vodafone and T-Mobile are reported have agreed to Prima’s terms. These include a ban on the rewinding of content and ads on Prima channels.
Commenting on the current situation, O2 TV content manager Anna Lenerová said:“O2 does not consider the negotiations to be definitively terminated. The main effort is to protect all customers who use IPTV broadcasting. For this reason, O2 considers the conditions dictated by FTV Prima to be exaggerated and unrealistic.
“Restrictions on viewing will gradually affect all companies providing IPTV on the Czech market and thus all customers. We would also like to thank them for their incredible support on our social networks and on all Prima profiles. It is a great motivation for us. It strengthens us in the fact that we are following the only right path”.
