The take-up of digital satellite TV services is growing steadily in the Czech Republic thanks largely to the success of Skylink and CS Link.

Data produced by ATO-Mediaresearch and published by Digizone shows that just under a third (28.9%) of households received satellite TV as of the end of June.

On the other hand, 41.1% received DTT signals and 25.1% analogue TV, though the percentage of analogue-only homes was down to just 15%. Cable/IPTV services were meanwhile received in 24.5% of homes.

Set-top boxes were the most popular way of receiving DTT signals (26.6% of all households, including those not watching DTT), followed by digital TVs (14.4%) and DVD players with digital tuners (1.1%).
