New Media Law being considered
Hungary may soon have a new Media Law, reports Broadband TV News.
The website attributes index.hu, Fidesz and MSZP as the sources of the information.
The country’s two leading political parties are preparing the final text of the new law which is expected to be voted on in Parliament before the end of the year.
The new legislation calls for the establishment of a new broadcasting regulator to replace the existing National Radio and Television Board (ORTT).
In addition, the leading commercial broadcasters, RT Klub and TV2, would be allowed to launch new television services.
