    Eduardo Rojas - ViVe TV

  • “Any project which involves picking up eight busy channels and moving them across town is always going to be a challenge on a knife-edge,”

    “Even while the planning and moving is happening, we still have a station to run and channels to put out. So we needed a partner we could trust to come in and take responsibility for the move."
