iVsyilaniThe Czech public broadcaster Ceske Televize (CT) is looking for a new operator for its video service iVysilani.

According to E15, it has received complaints from viewers who have been unable to access the iVysilani site to watch the Sochi Olympics due to the server being overloaded.

An agreement between CT and KIT digital on the operation of the server expires at the end of this year and the broadcaster has already announced a tender for a two-year contract worth CZK18 million (657,000).
