New TV Law on hold

The Government has put off the decision to send the new overall TV Law, Ley General del Audiovisual to the Parliament because of lack of time available in the current parliamentary session.
The new law was aimed at ending the ‘chaotic’ and disparate Spanish TV legislation according to advanced-television.comThe delay which also affected another law to create an Audiovisual council will allow the inclusion of a new part of the legislation called ‘new TV without frontiers’. This new piece of legislation forms part of a wide Government plan to reform the TV industry and includes regulation of DTT and the re-organisation of state-owned RTVE.
