Czech TV refuses to share live feed of inauguration

07-03-2013

Czech Public Television will be the only broadcaster with official live coverage of Friday’s presidential inauguration ceremony. The station has decided not to share the live feed from the ceremony, frustrating its competitors and smaller news organizations. Part of the ceremony will be outside and open to the public, but the Prague Castle administration chose only one television crew to cover the official swearing in ceremony that will take place inside the Vladislav Hall, allegedly for capacity reasons. Czech Television has promised to make the recording of the ceremony available to other broadcasters as soon as possible after the event.
