Volumes of technical arguments have been submitted to the ORTT by both sides, but the question can be put succinctly: Do the Poles have the right to determine whether Little Miss Millions can prance her way into Polish living rooms?
Canal Plus first filed a complaint in 1997 with the ORTT and Poland's National Television and Radio Council (KRRiTV), which repeatedly refused to hear it on technical grounds inherent in delocated broadcasting: Since the company had neither a Polish license nor a downlink transmitter, the board had no legal basis to hear the case.
In April, the ORTT
penalized commercial networks RTL-controlled RTL Klub, SBS-controlled TV2 and regional net Budapest TV for airing violent and sexual content.
Szolt added that the Tender is a very positive act on behalf of the Hungarian ORTT
, as he believes the ORTT
will issue future Tenders of the same nature, further supporting Hungarian Productions as well as other Hungarian Broadcasting entities.
