What might be behind it
Živé.sk’s editorial team spoke to several smaller and medium-sized operators who unanimously claim that Nova Sport offers and certainly does not want to “launch” attractive competitions freely for the entire market.
“We got unacceptable terms. And when I say unacceptable, I mean they asked us for an annual fee that almost matches the annual budget for the entire TV service, including platform and station fees,” says one.
Another player told us that Nova Sport asked for a flat annual fee of hundreds of thousands of euros. He also stated that he could not accept such an offer in any way. The financial requirements for each operator vary.
Many TV providers believe that the offer of small operators is only official, so that Nova Sport is not threatened by disputes over antitrust measures. The show was presented by TV to all interested, but rating the stations is not financially viable under any circumstances.
“When discussing with others (operators, editor’s note), everyone says the same thing – they don’t want to bring these channels to market and the goal is the current state of Telekom, Orange and possibly Skylink to call” a medium-sized operator says one representative. He also did not want to be named.
It was also confirmed by another worker who was interested in the listing. He believes that “TV Nova is offering operators the inclusion of these channels under unacceptable conditions, which seems to be their intent that no one wants them except for the selected operators.”

Nova Sport: We will not comment on other people’s opinions
If the station operator is interested in being included in the bids of all operators, it can be estimated that he will seek quick agreements with several providers from the start – investing in TV rights in millions of euros.
Nova Sport has also written to us for comment. He did not comment on the allegations of disproportionate financial requirements.
“We cannot share details from ongoing or closed negotiations or comment on other parties’ views on these negotiations,” Nova Nemek spokesman Jan Nomyk said.
However, the TV representative again indicated that he was negotiating with other Slovak operators to offer this content to “as many viewers as possible”.
