Czech Z1 to go 24/7

The Czech news-based digital channel Z1 will become a 24-hour service from next Monday (February 23), according to Parabola.

Up until now it has been on air from 06.00 to 01.00 in weekdays and 08.00 to 00.00 at weekends.

J&T Group-Z1 was the first of the six digital channels awarded ‘compensatory’ licences following a long-running dispute to launch, making its debut in June last year.

It is distributed across all digital platforms in the Czech Republic, including the DTT multiplex operated by the Czech Digital Group (CDG).
