Nova BH is a Bosnian commercial television channel launched on 9 October 2018. From 2003 to 2018, this national commercial station formerly was known as Pink BH and it was fully operated by Serbian Pink Media Group. Since October 2018, Nova BH is a member of the United Media portfolio[3], the leading media platform in South East Europe.[4] Headquarters is located in Sarajevo and Nova BH also has offices and studios in Banja Luka.


Pink BH (2003 - 2018)[edit]

In May 2003, a newly founded Pink BH Company began operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Through the acquisition of smaller local TV stations (RTV Kometa, NRTV Banja Luka, RTV Step, TV GLS, RTV Info Tes, TV Teodora and TV Ljubinje), Bosnian subsidiary of RTV Pink and Pink International Company also took over their terrestrial broadcasting frequencies.

With two production centers, offices and studios in Sarajevo and Banja Luka, channel received its broadcast license for a ten-year period from the Communications Regulatory Agency of BiH on 15 July 2005. Soon, Pink BH reach more than 80 percent of the country, covering some 63 percent of the BiH population. On June 24, 2008, the Pink Media Group opened its new headquarters in the Sarajevo neighbourhood of Alipašino polje.[5]

Thanks to various TV content (mostly music and entertainment), Pink BH was leading television station countrywide, beating out other privately owned commercial stations and the public television stations. It was only television station that has managed to cultivate audiences in both administrative entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina (the Federation of BiH and Republika Srpska), and among all three major ethnic groups. The station also became notable for showing popular American TV series such as Charmed and Baywatch as well as Bosnian sitcoms called Sex i Selo and Mahalaši.

Most popular music and entertainment shows offten were re-broadcast from Serbian RTV Pink. Later, the share of domestic production has increased by home-made TV shows like "Sarajevo On Line", "Made in Banja Luka", "Zabranjeni forum", "Sa Tanjom na ti", "Dobar komšija", "Izzy game" etc.

Thanks to regional joint production (Pink BH, RTV Pink & Pink M), a popular morning program called "Balkan Net" was aired live from four TV studios (Sarajevo and Banja Luka in Bosnia, Belgrade in Serbia and Budva or Podgorica in Montenegro).

Also, many international formats from Endemol Shine Group have been broadcast in co-operation with Emotion production company, for the first time in Balkan countries like "Veliki Brat" - Big Brother[6], "M(ij)enjam ženu" - local version of Wife Swap, "Ruski rulet" - Russian roulette etc.

In April 2010, it was reported that Pink BH downsized a large portion of its staff. Out of 163 employees, 57 got laid off on this occasion. The network's management said the decision had been made due to the station's decreasing revenue that went down 50% since 2008.[7] Similarly, the once most watched station's viewership decreased in this period.[8]. In April 2014, many Bosnian and Serbian media reported that RTV Pink will move all 68 cable channels from Serbia to Bosnia and Herzegovina (via PMG and Pink BH headquarters in Sarajevo) [9] where program distribution fees[10] were far cheaper.

In June 2018, Pink International Company (part of PMG) sold to "Direct Media" its Montenegrin and Bosnian divisions - Pink M and Pink BH, respectively.[11] On 4 September 2018[12], PMG launched a new cable channel called Pink Media BH[13] for Bosnian market.

On 9 October 2018, the station has been renamed to Nova BH.[14]
