Violent content led to ban, Channel 3 says

- +

TV Channel 3 has denied political interference was responsible for its refusal to air the soap opera Nua Mek 2, saying violent content was the reason for the ban instead. 

This is the first time the TV station has explained its decision publicly after abruptly ending the broadcast of the series last Friday with three episodes still to go, and replacing the series with a new show.

The channel has screened the content of all programmes and its decision to take the soap opera off the air was not politically motivated, said Borisut Buranasamrit, public relations managing director at Channel 3.
