NOVA offers Cypriot subscribers an array of programming choices from News, Sports, Movies, Children's & Entertainment.
From 1 July 2011 both LTV and Alfa removed definitely from NOVA Cyprus because the two sides were not able to come to an agreement after the dissolution of Multichoice Cyprus. Then NOVA Cyprus is under the control of Forthnet and Multichoice Hellas and during the summer were added HD service (NovaCinema 1-2 HD, NovaSports 1-2 HD etc.) from NOVA Greece and some other channels.
"In July 2006, LTV pulled their service from the NOVA lineup, due to a dispute with Multichoice. In August 2006, Alfa TV was also removed from the NOVA line-up due to the same dispute." The channels then went on to sign with rival DTH provider Athina Sat.
In 2008, the two sides resumed negotiations and were able to come to an agreement. As of March 3, 2008, both LTV and Alfa are now once again available through NOVA Cyprus.
