Government to propose DTT licence trading

New Government proposals to amend the General Broadcasting Law could allow Broadcasters to trade up to half their total licences five years after they have been allotted. The proposal goes on to extend the licence period from 10 to 15 years and makes the proviso that if broadcasters fail or stop broadcasting for a period of one year that their licence will be revoked.
The proposed legislation is currently in preparatory status with Parliament.
