New Private TV Station For Slovakia
  BRATISLAVA, Slovakia, 96/09/28 (OMRI) -- The Slovak parliament on 26
September announced that Slovak TV's second channel will begin broadcasting
via satellite from 1 January 1997, Slovak media reported. This step will
free many terrestrial frequencies currently used by Slovak TV.

  The Board for Television and Radio Broadcasting is expected soon to grant
a license to a new nationwide private TV station, TV Koliba, which will use
the frequencies freed by Slovak TV's second channel. TV Koliba is reportedly
backed by leaders of Vladimir Meciar's Movement for a Democratic Slovakia.
Another nationwide private TV station. Markiza, began broadcasting in August.
