Nova secures satellite licence

The Czech Radio and TV Council (RRTV) has awarded a 12-year satellite licence to CET 21, the operator of the national commercial broadcaster TV Nova.

As a result, TV Nova may start its own satellite transmissions. CET 21 already holds satellite distribution licences for the proprietary thematic channels Nova Sport (formerly known as Galaxie Sport) and Nova Cinema.

TV Nova, which is the most popular broadcaster in the Czech Republic, is also widely distributed via DTT.
