Azerbaijan issues licenses to 14 companies delivering television programming over Internet


In 2016 the National Television and Radio Council (NTRC) issued licenses to 14 companies delivering television programming over the Internet, the head of NTRC legal and international affairs department, Nemat Javadov, told APA on Wednesday.

 

He noted that NTRC is interested in the development of IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) which is a new sphere of broadcasting.

 

Javadov added that the Council is receiving appeals regarding licenses for IPTV. “Under the decision of the chairman, the Council holds meeting after receiving appeals from three or four companies. Council members pass a decision on issuance of the licenses,” he added.

 

The department head said the list of documents needed for licenses over IPTV has been diminished.

 

“By submitting five or six documents, IP televisions are given a license. Whoever wants to engage in IP television activities must request it from the National Television and Radio Council,” he said.

 

Javadov added that the license costs AZN 1,500 and are given permanently.

 

Earlier, the NTRC said that some companies including Garakhan LLC, Metronet LLC, Bakikhanov LLC and Aytaj LLC engage in IP television activities illegally.
