Local ads on foreign TV channels banned

The Information Ministry has directed the distributors to stop broadcasting advertisements of local companies in foreign television channels.

 

Information ministry, in a letter issued recently, said: sub clause-13 under clause-19 of Cable TV Network Operation Act 2006 has totally imposed a ban on airing advertisements on foreign channels.

 

But, reports surfaced that local advertisements are still being aired on several foreign channels which is contradictory to the law. 

 

The maximum punishment under the act is two years' imprisonment or a fine of Tk 1 lakh and the distribution license may be cancelled or suspended in case of breaching the law.
