New satellite channel for Portugal

Portuguese viewers keen on music, videos and fashion will soon have a new service, mvmTV.

This new channel will soon launch on satellite pay-TV operator TVTEL, recently bought by Portuguese media group Zon Multimedia for E100 million.

Launched six months ago on the internet the new channel will broadcast 16 hours a day and in the long run it aims to broadcast 24 hours a day.

Apart from being distributed by TVTEL the channel is also seeking other means of distribution for nationally complete coverage.

Now that Zon Multimedia has bought TVTEL the company will create a subsidiary dedicated to the production of TV and internet channels.
