Public TV defends actions

PRIVATE Slovak television stations are intensifying their attacks against public television channel STV in hopes of securing a bigger piece of the advertising pie, reports the daily Pravda.

Private broadcasters are accusing STV of breaching the law by competing for advertising revenue. STV justifies its actions, saying that it needs income generated by advertising to keep its balance sheet healthy.

"It is impossible to operate without advertising revenues," said STV management.
