The day will be divided in even shares of broadcasting and MNTV Ukraine will have a 12 hours of broadcasting including the crucial primetime per day.

I see opportunities for MNTV and KRT, as in a couple of years the goal is to go up in ratings and become a top 6 channel in Ukraine, receiving 8% share of the Ukrainian TV market. It gives Opportunities to foreign companies to advertise in Ukraine and for Ukrainian companies to enter the European market through the MNTV network of TV channels opening in 40 countries. Manager of MNTV Ukraine Vladimir Zhilko says about the deal:
The group is moving ahead with their plans for expansion throughout Eastern Europe. ?First Ukraine then Russia and Balkans will set the trend with advertising sales and sponsoring before the end of the year 2008? says Christophe Kourdouly VP of MNH. ?The Ad sales agency used by KRT will operate for MNTV as well, aiming at 25 spots daily to reach the local breakeven. The audience targeted is large because we are offering entertaining programmes with an alternative strategy of films editorially placed between Arthouse and blockbuster genre.
