several years and the idea of competition was driving me crazy. Others appeared: Antena 1, Tele 7 and they used to broadcast movies! We didn?t. A movie was a TV symbol. If you broadcast movies, you are successful. PRO TV was only broadcasting sports. These guys broadcast movies, so we are doomed. They beat us.
