More worries for MTV Czech

By Chris Dziadul | June 12, 2009

The already delayed launch of a Czech version of MTV appears to be running into further difficulties.

According to E15 and Parabola, a dispute has erupted between Viacom, the owner of MTV International, and Time Warner, which last month secured a stake in CME.

The latter owns TV Nova, the Czech national commercial station that holds a licence to operate the local version of the music channel in the Czech Republic.

Both MTV and TV Nova still insist the launch will still go ahead.
As of last month, it was expected to take place either at the end of this year or in early 2010.
