The National Public Television and Radio Company of Ukraine (UA:PBC) will show the following Winter and Summer Olympic Games at the expense of funds left from the Eurovision-2017. This was reported by the press service of UA:PBC.
It is noted that the Cabinet will allocate over 4.7 million dollars for the broadcast of the competitions in Pyeongchang. Funds remained from Eurovision-2017 in Kyiv.
"The money remained from the Eurovision Song Contest, will be spent on technical expenses, equipment, UA:PBC creative and technical groups’ trips to the Korean Pyeongchang and production of studio themed special projects," committee chairman Oleh Nalyvaiko commented.
UA:PBC will show the Olympic Games-2020 in Tokyo the same way.
"Also, thanks to the redistribution of budget spending, UA:PBC will pay the first tranche for the acquisition of license rights for the coverage of the XXXII Summer Olympic Games," he added.
As it was reported earlier the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council predictably announced the Rada TV channel winner in the contest for obtaining a license for a nationwide digital broadcasting channel.
The National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council predictably announced the Rada TV channel winner in the contest for obtaining a license for a nationwide digital broadcasting channel on November 9.
The number of the MPs, experts and specialized mass media expressed the suspicion that initially the contest was oriented for the parliamentary Rada TV channel. The letter from Yury Artemenko, the Head of the National TV Council to Andry Paruby, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada written on July 1, 2016, and where Artemenko offered to consider the getting of the license for the digital broadcasting by Rada TV Channel was the evidence of this. The parliament provided the purchase of the equipment for the switch to the digital broadcasting long before the announcement of the contest.
The journalists held the protest with a demand to hold the honest contest near the building of the National Council.
