Czech version of MTV to be launched in November. Not a good idea

mtvI went through puberty listening to MCM and MTV. I had my favorite VJ’s and I would tune in to MTV on purpose because I knew they would be hosting their show.

And now MTV is going Czech.🙂 According to the TN.cz news server (via the professional RadioTV.cz server) the MTV Czech broadcast should be launched on November 29.

I honestly don’t think that the Czech version is a good addition to the Czech TV industry. The station is a phenomenon and its contents should be left in English.

Besides, it is enough already that all sitcoms, TV shows, movies etc.  on Czech commercial TV stations are dubbed. Easy contents and “casual” topics are the best way to learn English. I understand that this is not the mission of MTV owners. All I am saying is that “translating MTV” is like translating CNN.
