Television has been experiencing major financial problems for a long time; Last November, a creditor filed an insolvency petition at the station.
“As a result of the coordinated bullying actions carried out by the Czech Digital Group and Česká Radiokomunikace, the debtor found himself in a situation where he was more than a month behind on his obligations, which he was not able to meet,” said Ulag TV attorney Dusan Zak in the insolvency petition.
The conduct of “bullying” pursuant to the insolvency motion included the closure of the channel, the inappropriate presentation of insolvency or the aforementioned blocking of funds in bank accounts in June of this year. This was related to the creditor’s efforts to recover a claim of nearly twenty million.
Czech digital group Česká Radiokomunikace filed for bankruptcy against Šlágr TV last year at the end of November. In it, Czech Digital Group claimed at the time that the station owed the company 45 million kroner for communication services. Last August, creditors confined the station to a black screen that read Šlágr.
At that time, due to debts, České Radiokomunikace stopped broadcasting the channels lágr TV and Šlágr 2. After that the station secured the signal via digital broadcasting, but according to it, there was a sharp drop in viewership and revenue.
But according to a statement last year from the creditor, Alágr TV is slowly approaching its debt. “The debtor has not paid the receivables with attachments in full; on the contrary, the receivables with their attachments have increased and are growing uncontrollably every month, and the debtor himself repeatedly declares, even in the media, that he is unable to pay his obligations,” he stated.
