The operator replaced the channels with a a range of services including BBC Knowledge, Comedy Central, Shorts and BBC World News. These will remain in Romtelecom’s core packages on satellite and IPTV until the end of March, after which they will be included in different Dolce TV packages.

Romtelecom said its customers would not incur additional charges as a result of the deal struck with Pro TV.
