Slovak Telekom now has more TV customers than Skylink in Slovakia.
The M7 Group-owned Czech and Slovak DTH platform operator Skylink will implement important changes to its paid programme packages on March 1.
M7 Group has failed to reach an agreement with Scripps Networks Interactive over the distribution of Travel Channel, Food Network HD and Fine Living HD.
Skylink is able to accurately estimate the number of customers or pirates who access the service on a card share basis.
The cooking and lifestyle channel Mnam TV will no longer be available to Skylink customers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia from the beginning of November.
M7 Group has brushed off an accusation that it is responsible for a high level of card sharing piracy in Slovakia, especially in the eastern part of the country.
M7 Group has added two time-shifted channels to its Skylink offer in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The DTH platform Skylink is finding itself under growing pressure from the incumbent telco Telekom in Slovakia.
M7 Group’s Skylink, the leading DTH platform in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, has begun promoting Disney Channel.
Discovery Networks’ thematic channels will continue to be available on the European pay-TV platforms of M7 Group as the two parties have resolved their disagreement over carriage fees.
