Terrestrial Broadcasters to Sternly Respond to Cable Operators

2012/01/17 | 259 views |  | Permalink | Source

The nation's three major terrestrial broadcasters, KBS, MBC and SBS, have decided to respond sternly to the suspension of transmission of the broadcasters' programs by cable TV operators.

The Korean Broadcasters Association (KBA), an organization of the three terrestrial broadcasters, on Tuesday held an emergency meeting and decided that it will respond strongly to any disruptions to its broadcasting.

The association said that cable TV operators unilaterally suspended the transmission when talks on transmission fees are still under way. The association said the suspension is a collective act of holding the viewers as hostage and that the broadcasters cannot accept any acts that violates the viewers' rights.

Cable TV operators on Monday stopped airing programs from KBS2 TV after failing to reach an agreement with terrestrial broadcasters over transmission fees.
