Mark Dodd, Managing Director for RETV is excited about the opportunities around the corner. ‘By becoming part of FIC’s international bouquet of channels, RETV will be able to leverage the company’s publishing, online and other channels to further improve our viewers experience while enhancing at the same time the value proposition we can offer to our advertisers’.
