Rio Media replaces ZDF with 3sat HD channel

Friday 16 October 2015 | 10:41 CET | News
Czech regional operator Rio Media said that it stopped distributing the German channel ZDF on 15 October. The company said this is because O2 Czech Republic has the rights to broadcast football matches from the Champions League, and Rio Media's networks would be technically unable to restrict any overlap of such broadcasts. Instead of ZDF another German channel 3sat HD will be added on HFC networks.
