A new thematic channel focused on wars and the military has launched in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
According to Parabola, WAR svět válek (‘WAR’ – the world of wars’) is operated by Československá filmová společnost and the first such service anywhere in Europe.
Initially, it is being made available to Skylink customers in the two countries who opt for its Digital paid package. It will subsequently be placed in Skylink’s Smart package.
Broadband TV News notes that other platforms that have previously indicated the launch of the channel include UPC. It will also be available to terrestrial viewers.
Československá filmová společnost is headed by Leos Pohl and includes several other thematic channels in its portfolio.
