Czech republic really will be participate in next year.

National contest will start in March 2007. Pre-selection will be based probably from radio stations top-tens.
Winners will be selected by viewers (by SMS and e-mail votes).

There is no tradition to participate in ESC in our country.


Yes, but Intervision was a contest, normally, with the east countries (incluided the East Germany), but now, it isnt celebrates (i think)

But Slovakia, Poland, Russia, Estonia, and the rest, were participants in Internervision, and now are participants in Eurovision (Estonia winner in 2001, Latvia winner in 2002, Ukraine winner in 2004)

Ceska Televise was invited to participate in ESC a lot of times, but ever they said the same ("they haven't the money enough").

Yes, that i know, and it's great than the CR starts now. Here in Spain, the TVE (TeleVision Española) choose all in 1 month..., this last year, a intern election (Las Ketchup) and it was patetic...

The Czech TV has not its own money. First of all the CTV would have to ask us, the licence fee payers, if we want to spend our money on such events like ESC.

I pay 100 Kč monthly and I should vote NAY. But the CTV certainly will not give us such possibility. :cry:

Like many public televisions, Czech television is financed from television licence fees. They are compulsory by law for every tv owner (soon for every user of electricity).

But this isnt a problem. Czech Rep. is the 21st country with more money of the eurovision countries (21/50 ..)
