Cable TV companies protest RTL Klub, TV2 programme fees
Budapest, June 16 (MTI) – The Hungarian Cable Communications Association (KBSZ) has sent a letter to national media authority NMHH protesting against fees TV service providers will have to pay commercial broadcasters RTL Klub and TV2, business daily Vilaggazdasag said on Thursday.
RTL Klub and TV2 earlier announced they would require cable, IPTV, satellite and MMDS service providers to pay a net monthly fee of 294 forints (EUR 0.93) and 290 forints, respectively, per subscriber, from July 1.
Ferenc Kery, the chairman KBSZ, told the paper that the programme fees are discriminative, do not comply with legal and regulatory requirements, and are not in the interest of consumers.
