Skylink is a satellite service that offers Czech and Slovak TV and radio stations to residents of Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The package includes channels received without subscription and pay-TV channels.

A number of HDTV channels were introduced into the package in 2009, and Skylink claims to have 500,000 subscribers from Slovakia and the Czech Republic, but on the end of the 2009, Skylink has 900,000 subscribers, and in April 2010, Skylink had reached 1 000 000 subscribers. In the beginning, all channels had been scrambled in the Cryptoworks System. However, this system will only be supported until 2012, so Skylink scrambles now all channels in the new Irdeto System. New channels are now scrambled only in the new Irdeto System, and each customer has the possibility to buy a new card Skylink Výměna (Skylink exchange), which is able to decode Irdeto as well as Cryptoworks, and can work in Cryptoworks decoders - customers do not have to change their receivers.

The Skylink package is broadcast from Astra 3A at 23.5° east
