EVERYTEXT EXPANDS IN SPAIN
Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international media group, today
announced that Everytext, has launched its services on the Canal 7 TV
channel in Madrid. This agreement supplements Everytext’s existing
services to other national and regional TV broadcasters in Spain.
Everytext has today launched its teletext services on Canal 7, a
privately owned regional TV station in the Madrid area, which focuses on
delivering entertainment programming to a youth TV audience. The
agreement is for four years. Everytext already produces teletext
services for TeleMadrid, the largest TV channel in the Madrid area as
well as to other national and local TV channels. However, Canal 7 and
TeleMadrid reach a different profile of audience, and the two channels
have a combined reach of 6 million people.
Hans-Holger Albrecht, President and CEO of MTG, commented: “This
agreement further strengthens Everytext’s position in the thriving
commercial area of Madrid. Everytext’s net sales increased by 41% in
2001 and it is the leading producer of teletext services in Europe.”
