The Czech and Slovak DTH platforms Skylink and CS Link will come under the direct control of M7 Group on January 1.

Quoted by Parabola, Jaromir Glisnik, the head of the platforms’ current operator M77 Group, said this will follow on from the latter’s merger today (December 31) with its Luxembourg-based parent company M7.

As a result, Skylink and CS Link will join the four other platforms – CanalDigitaal, TV Vlaanderen, TéléSAT and AustriaSAT – in M7’s portfolio.

Separately, Glisnik revealed that Skylink now has 100,000 subscribers to its HD services.
