Funding of the Georgian Public Television reduced

2012-11-13 12:24

Funding of the Georgian Public Television at the expense of the budget is reduced by 17.8 million lari (about $ 10.5 million), the News-Georgia reported. This was announced by the Deputy Finance Minister David Ebralidze at a meeting of the Parliamentary Committee of Education and Science.


Ebralidze accounts the reduced funding for the current principle of funding of the public broadcaster, which is linked to the country's gross domestic product.

According to the law "On public TV", the funding of the public broadcaster is defined in an amount not less than 0.12% of the gross domestic product of the country, according to the figure for the previous year.

Meanwhile, in Tbilisi, the cable operators have resumed broadcasting of Russian TV-channels, interrupted during the 2008 war.

In particular, the cable operator "7-th channel" has included in its broadcasting net Russian "First Channel", TV Center and several other channels. Users have to pay extra four lari per month (about two dollars) to watch them.
