PRAGUE — A two-year-old court case over a disputed terrestrial signal in Slovenia is finally nearing an end.
In question is the Euro 3 TV signal in capital Ljubljana, which is used to broadcast CME niche channel Gajba TV. Rival channel Kanal A, an SBS station, has a 10% stake in the signal.
The case is scheduled to be heard Oct. 15, when all the parties involved are called to appear in court.
According to Kanal A legal representative Igor Vezovnik, the dispute began when other shareholders signed a second contract with CME’s local affiliate.
Vezovnik said Kanal A is optimistic that under Slovenian law, it has a solid case. A judgment in favor of Kanal A would be a major blow for the young CME station, which transmits via just three regional signals, Ljubljana being the most important.
Gajba is a sister station to POP-TV.
