Problems for Slovenian DTT
Slovenia’s first multiplex has lost its leading commercial channels Pop TV, Kanal A and TV Pika.
Broadband TV News quotes Satkurier as the source of a story which says that all three broadcasters have been dropped because of a dispute over the non-payment of fees by their owners CME backed PRO Plus. Earlier MTG backed TV3, was removed from the multiplex for the same reason. Now only the three public broadcast channels are carried.
The dispute centres around the much higher fees charged to commercial channels than to their public counterparts on the DTT platform.
