Digi brings back AMC channels

Media group AMC Networks’ channels have returned to Czech operator Digi TV’s platform after being removed last month.

Reports suggest that Digi – owned by Czech company Lama Energy Group – has been forced into the move after AMC was granted a preliminary injunction against the removal of the channels.

The restored AMC channels include Sport 1 and Sport 2. AMC holds rights in the Czech Republic to: third-party European Qualifier and Nations League matchesFormula One, the Champions Hockey League, and the Kontinental Hockey League.

However, AMC recently failed to renew its rights to Italy’s Serie A in the country, with Digi taking over the rights over the three seasons from 2018-19 to 2020-21.
