Maestro TV channel obtained license for satellite broadcasting

2009-07-03 18:42

Today the National Commission for Communications of Georgia issued Maestro independent channel a license for country-wide satellite broadcasting, said Natia Miiashvili, the information service head - RIA Novosti.


"Today we received a license for satellite broadcasting, and we are very grateful to some members of the Commission. Actually, according to our legislation, the Commission had no grounds to refuse, though it adjourned the settling of the issue. It must have been solved a month ago", Mikiashvili said.

The company management cannot rule out the beginning of country-wide broadcasting starting with autumn, though Mikiashvili said the question must be settled by technicians.

At the present moment the company broadcasts in Tbilisi, Telavi and Batumi [in the latter - with the initiative of the 21st channel, receiving signal via Internet]. Opposition, independent experts and human rights activists believe that Maestro is one of the two independent TV companies in georgia [the other is Caucasia, also with a very limited area of coverage].

All other channels, broadcasting country-wide, opposition calls "puppet TVs of the authorities".
