The MTG-backed Czech national commercial broadcaster FTV Prima has been awarded a licence by the country’s Broadcasting Council (RRTV) to operate a further thematic channel.

Zive reports that the service will be known as Prima Zoom and show documentaries.

Distributed via DTT and DTH – in each instance, the licence is for a period of 12 years – it could make its debut before the end of the year.

Aside from its flagship channel Prima TV, FTV Prima already operates the thematic channels Prima Family, Prima Cool and Prima Love.
