Euronews has confirmed plans to launch a new channel in Georgia.
The broadcaster announced in July that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with Georgian telco Silknet in view of launching a new channel and digital platform aimed at a Georgian-speaking audience.
The two companies have now signed an agreement to launch both a news channel and digital platform in the country.
Michael Peters, Euronews CEO, said: “After only a few months of negotiations, I am very pleased that we reached an agreement to launch Euronews Georgia. We look forward to helping our partner Silknet build a new TV channel, which will broadcast international but also local news. Euronews Georgia will be an independent network, delivering impartial news and presenting all views, just as Euronews has always done. We are particularly committed to this and have put in place all necessary guarantees to ensure this.”
