Late last year (2019), v6 Ventures acquired the PragueTV portal (actually, for the 2nd time. The first acquisition in 2004 failed for various reasons, a conversation for another time. Over a beer. Actually, lots of beer!) together with the Prague Monitor, adding them to what is now the CityMedia Network Platform.
At the time (and as you may know) we were running and growing the CitySpy Network with CitySpy Prague being our flagship portal with a focus on highlighting the best of Prague through various content formats, principally video.
With a 2nd opportunity to acquire PragueTV (we’ll come to the Monitor in a mo), we agreed this was a key opportunity to make good on the first acquisition and to grow our audience and content. In doing so, we knew that some content and site consolidation (both in our own portfolio and in the local Prague market) was inevitable.
CitySpy Prague and PragueTV had significantly overlapping content and audiences and so it was decided to consolidate the portals into and elarged one called PragueLife!. This is why you have been redirected here.
We have been busy behind the scenes importing the content from PragueTV into the new, enlarged PragueLife Magazine. All of the PragueTV content will be viewable here when the importing completes (See below for updates as we complete them). We have respected all of the original article authors but email addresses have been masked to prevent en-mass spam during migration.
Unfortunately, due to differences in the old and new content systems, we have not been able to preserve the original content URLs and so you may see some 404 (broken link / page cannot be found) errors. The search bar on the enlarged PragueLife! site should help you pick up any old content you are looking for.
IMPORTANT: We have mapped 00’s of old URLs to their new URL in order to get you to the content you seek. We will be alerted to any additional redirection we need to set in near-real time and so can add right away.
The Prague Monitor remains as-is in content terms, the original, authoritive source for Czech News in English and is also growing through a tech upgrade as we speak.
PragueLife! is here to support and help, yup you guessed it, your Prague life. We are run by a team of long-term, well-connected expats and so believe that if you need – want something, we have you covered.
There are many post-migration plans from here on, and we hope you’ll stick with us as we do.
Welcome to PragueLife!
PS, Remember, this is a smart landing page, it may know of the page you were looking for and if so, will forward you to the same content on PragueLife!
PPS, we couldn’t do everything in advance of migration and so some things needed to follow. We will update the list below as we complete the steps:
- 28NOV: Commenced content & domain consolidation.
- 29NOV: Redirection to this page to allow completion of content redirection rules.
