Music TV channel for Slovak audiences

MUSIC fans in Slovakia will soon be able to tune in to a new domestic Music Channel, a TV license for which has been obtained by the Bratislava-based TV Servis company.

The country's Broadcasting and Retransmission Council (RVR) approved the license for TV Servis July 2, providing the company with 13 free frequencies which will enable it to reach around 20 per cent of Slovak territory.

RVR head Peter Kováč said that TV Servis had "a professionally prepared project," although he had questioned some of the goals the company had set for itself, such as the launch of Music Channel broadcasting in six months.
