Minister of State Nikos Pappas Praises Submission of Bids in TV License Tender

Nikos PappasWith the successful conclusion of the first stage in a tender process for granting television content licenses and the submission of 11 bids by the 3 p.m. deadline, the government is one step closer to fulfilling one of SYRIZA’s key pre-election pledges, Minister of State Nikos Pappas said on Monday.
“The successful conclusion of the submission of bids in the tender for licensing private channels is a big step forward in the direction of implementing a key pre-election pledge of the SYRIZA government. After 25 years of lawlessness, the television landscape in the country will for the first time operate with terms of legality. We have put an end to the corrupt triangle of television channels, banks and politicians,” he said.
The companies submitting bids for one of the four content licenses for national television channels on offer included the broadcasters Skai, Star Channel, Antenna TV, Dimera Media Investments Ltd, Alpha, Ioannis Vladimiros Ch. Kalogritsas, Alter Ego, Epsilon TV, Independent Television Content Provider, Mega Channel and City News.
The process of unsealing the bids, carried out by a five-member special committee, will begin one hour after the deadline in the presence of legal representatives of the 11 candidates.
Pappas welcomed the successful solution of the bids-submission phase, saying the 11 bids were “the best reply to those that fought to prevent the tender taking place.” The next stage of the process, he added, which will culminate in the selection of the four private channels that will broadcast nationally in Greece from the following season will take place in early August.
