November 14, 2012 01.03 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

The Slovak national commercial broadcaster TV Joj has announced plans to launch a third channel.

Designed to complement its two current channels TV Joj and Plus, the still-to-be named service will offer news, documentaries and lifestyle programming and make its debut in March 2013.

It will target viewers of working age and be distributed nationally via DTT, on a multiplex operated by Towercom.

The new service will compete directly with the long-established news channel TA3.
