New Legislation for Greek TV Station Licenses Revealed

tvThe Greek government revealed a new proposed piece of legislation that dictates the process for issuing licenses for Greek TV stations.
The new legislation dictates how licenses will be issued, how long they are valid for, and under what circumstances they can be revoked among other conditions.
New licenses will be valid for ten years. The cost of procuring a license and the maximum number of employees that can be hired at each station will vary depending on the content of the network.
The legislation proposes that nationally syndicated networks with general informative content offer at least 8,000,000 euros for license procurement, while networks with thematic informative content offer at least 5,000,000 euros, and lastly, networks without informative content offer at least 2,000,000 euros.
Nationally syndicated networks of general informative content can have up to 400 employees and nationally syndicated networks with the thematic informative content can have up to 200 employees. Nationally syndicated networks of non-informative content can have up to 50 employees and regionally syndicated networks will be able to employ up to 20 people.
Greek government spokesperson Olga Gerosvasili had noted earlier on Monday that she believes that there will initially be five to eight licenses issued for networks that will be broadcast throughout Greece. The ultimate decision to grant licenses lies with the State Minister, in this case Nikos Pappas.
The legislation will be voted on by the Greek Parliament  this upcoming Saturday.
