The decision of the Board say the TV company is passed to private owners in order to improve effectiveness of management and improvement of broadcasting.

The Board head stated the Public Broadcaster wasn't fully deprived of the Russian-speaking Perviy Kavkazski channel and added in the future it would possibly turn into an independent channel with a separate frequency.
On July 12th the Paris Commercial Court didn't satisfy the claim of the Public Broadcaster of Georgia to Eutelsat [French operator], which on January 23rd stopped broadcasting of the Perviy Kavkazki channel via W7 satellite and offered to broadcast via W2A satellite. The Broadcaster demanded to resume airing at the frequency, mentioned in the contract.
