TV Nova does not want broadcast in Slovakia

Czech private TV channel TV Nova reports that it does not want to be broadcast in Slovakia by private cable channels. Currently it is broadcast by UPC Slovensko and Satro.

"We do not wish our programmes to be broadcast through Slovak cable companies," said Nova's spokesperson Petr Kostka.

Satro's director František Kadúch told the daily Pravda that the company had originally had permission to broadcast Nova's output but that the agreement had lapsed.

Kostka claims that it is not just that Nova wants Slovaks watch its Slovak sister channel TV Joj instead, but also a question of the increased cost of copyright for broadcasting in Slovakia.
