Very big interview with the head of KHL TV department. Some important bits:

- She's happy with the business situation in the Central Europe i.e. Czech Republic and Slovakia. They're negotiating a long-term contract. Hungary is in the list as well.

- This season KHL games were not available in Sweden and Finland, since Viasat deal has come to an end. But in the end they've come to an agreement with large channels in said countries. She's not sure when they'll begin to air games, but playoff will be covered.

- It's likely that Setanta UK will air KHL games in England.

- Negotiations with Asian countries are still in early phase. It's too early to tell if something comes out of this.

- ESPN has no complaints about picture quality.

- Traktor is working on getting new TV equipment. She encourages other teams to follow suit.
