The Czech station TV Barrandov has denied that may be about to be taken over Ringier though conceded that there is cooperation between the two parties.

In a wide-ranging interview with Digizone, its CEO Janka Vozarova and programme director Janis Sidovsky also said that it attained a 7% share of Czech TV ad revenue last year, with sales, including advertising, amounting to over CZK300 million (11.8 million).

They added that TV Barrandov, which was launched three years ago this month, is also approaching breakeven.

Its future plans include the launch of an on demand service this autumn.
