TrueVisions told to remove banner ads

- +

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has ordered pay-TV operator TrueVisions to remove a 10-second advertisement from a banner showing TV programmes while consumers change channels. 

The decision came after an investigation by the NBTC's broadcasting committee following consumers' complaints about the ad, which blocked a large part of the TV screen and forced viewers to watch it.

The regulator said if TrueVisions does not follow the order, the company will be fined a maximum of 5 million baht plus 100,000 baht a day for the continuing broadcast of the ad.
