"Maestro" in each house of Georgia2012-07-06 16:02
Georgian Parliament has approved the so-called principle of "Must Carry". According to it, some amendments, relating to rules of television broadcasting, will be introduced into the Election Code. Cable broadcasters are now required to broadcast all the channels of the country starting from the date of the election campaign and until its completion. But this law has two major drawbacks.
The first drawback is that this obligation does not apply to post-election period, and representatives of the Georgian public are demanding to broadcast all the TV channels until the announcement of election results.
The second major flaw is that this law does not provide for sanctions that could be imposed on the provider, which refused to include one or another channel in its network.
Channels which the government does not patronize, must get the opportunity to bring its TV products to the maximum number of spectators during the election period. This is the purpose of a new action of the TV campaign "Maestro", associated with the distribution of satellite dishes.
TV Company "Maestro" has installed the first satellite dish in the village of Zemo Khandaki, Kaspi district. Population, of course, met this initiative with the approval. Despite intensive efforts of the state apparatus and the Interior Ministry to ban the action, many families have expressed a desire to get their own satellite dish, which would give them an opportunity to get unbiased information.
Soon TV "Maestro" imparts a massive nature to installing and distribution of satellite dishes in the region. Action called "Maestro" in every family" will last for a month.
According to the CEO of TV "Maestro" Bacha Kikabidze, action will be slight and accessible to residents of the region. The terms of the action will be available to the population in a few days. The last details are being specified, Kikabidze added.
Bacha Kikabidze said distribution of dishes would affect only the regions, since in Tbilisi everyone who wants to watch "Maestro" can watch it. There are cable channels, each of them are broadcasting "Maestro". Kikabidze added although the "Maestro" had the largest audience in Tbilisi, the owners of the channel were concerned about its further development. That is the purpose of the new project.
