CME is a media and entertainment company operating leading businesses in five Central and Eastern European markets: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. These operations include 30 television channels broadcasting to approximately 45 million people across our five markets. We develop and produce content for our television channels, and our content is also consumed through subscription- and advertising-based platforms online.

CME’s television networks enjoy leading audience shares generated largely from popular local content. Our leading channels also enable us to diversify our revenues from advertising to paid and subscription revenues, positioning the company as the industry trend setter in the region.

Our success across the region is attributable to our strategy of producing and broadcasting high quality local programming and independent news, building multichannel networks and sharing knowledge and skills between our highly talented and locally managed teams.

CME was founded in 1994 with the launch of TV Nova in the Czech Republic. CME's television brands are market and audience share leaders in all of its markets with a combined 2019 television advertising spend of approximately US$ 916 million.
