Skat television (Bulgaria)

Skat television (Bulgaria)

Skat television ( _bg. Национална телевизия Скат) is a Bulgarian national cable television company. The company was founded in 1992 in Bourgas and is headquartered there. Skat is also the name for one of the channels which Skat television operates from the Bulgarian capital city Sofia.

In 2005 Skat television has become a center of controversy caused by the company's hosting of programs and shows supporting Bulgarian nationalist political party National Union Attack. National Union Attack openly associates with such organizations as the National Front in France. Complaints from the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee and the political party Euroroma, stating that various Skat TV shows were focused on racial intolerance and racism, caused the Council for Electronic Media ("CEM") to announce investigations into the programs broadcast on the Skat cable television channel in July - August 2005.
