NBTC passes 'must-have', RS baulks

- +

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) approved a draft of "must-have" rules yesterday to govern free-TV broadcasters transmitting six international sporting events through all broadcast platforms without any conditions. 

Under the must-have rules, companies holding broadcast rights of the Fifa World Cup, SEA Games, Asean Games, Asean ParaGames, Paralympics and the Olympics must be aware of the must-have rules before striking any deals with free-TV operators, said Col Natee Sukonrat, the chairman of the NBTC's broadcasting committee.

The draft on the must-have principle passed the public hearing yesterday and will be submitted to its board on Nov 14 for approval.
