A new Slovak participation channel named TV8 will make its debut on February 1.

According to Medialne, the service has already secured carriage on UPC (digital cable), as well as the IPTV services Magio and FiberTV, operated by T-Com and Orange Slovakia respectively.

TV8ís licence is held by Phonotex, a Bratislava-based company specialising in audiotext and SMS services.

It will compete directly with Ring TV and Ziva, two other participation channels already operating in Slovakia.
