The pre-pay DTH platform Skylink has announced a number of important changes to its services in the Czech Republic and Slovakia that come into effect today (October 1).

Its basic package has been revamped by the addition of four more channels – National Geographic Channel (NGC), National Geographic Wild (NG Wild), Disney Channel and Sport 1. It also sees the return of MGM Channel, on a new frequency.

As a result, the total number of channels in the package has grown from seven to 19 in less than two years.

Nova Sport HD is meanwhile joining Skylink’s HD package, having been trialled for around half a year.

Skylink is also reducing the cost of receiving HBO in the Czech Republic and harmonising its prices in the two countries.
