Non-commercial broadcasting

Perhaps the first non-commercial TV broadcasting has started in Czech Republic about a month ago. It’s called TV Noe (Noah TV) and it’s a Christian broadcasting focusing on positive values and supposed to be financed mostly by voluntary contributions from its viewers and by broadcasting short messages from sponsors. Unlike other TV broadcasters in Czech Republic (including Czech public TV), TV Noe doesn’t broadcast advertisements. This model has already been successfully applied here for more 10 years by Radio Proglas, a Czech Christian radio sponsored almost completely by contributions from its listeners.

TV Noe currently broadcasts only through satellite and in proprietary video formats on Internet, so I can’t watch it. But I wish it success as it’s a unique and promising project here.
