Dragan Solak, Chairman of the Mid Europa backed group of SEE pay TV companies including Telemach, Total TV and SBB, said: “ITV provides a growth platform in the dynamic Bulgarian pay TV market and we look forward to supporting the business in order to optimize its operations and further augment its market position as well as derive further operating synergies on group wide pan-regional basis”.
