The Digital TV Industry has been having its own version of battle royale with the competition for ratings sending bidding prices for new shows through the roof and if you look at every company related to digital tv, all of their earnings were poor in 2014 and 1Q15, as a result of this they have essentially gotten together to sue the NBTC into doing something to save the industry from disaster and it looks like they’ve won the first step.
The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) board has agreed to postpone digital TV operators’ second licence fee payment for another year.
Secretary–general Takorn Tantasith said the telecommunications regulator yesterday decided to postpone the second licence fee payment, totalling 8.7 billion baht and due on May 24, for a year to help reduce the financial burden on digital TV operators.
Thus it’s good news for WORK, RS, GRAMMY, BEC, MCOT, MONO, NMG and several other players.
