95 foreign channels get down link license
KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Information and Communications today informed that 95 foreign television channels have been issued license to telecast their programmes in Nepal through downlink. Those TV channels include Discovery, BBC, Star, Max and Star Plus among others.

Similarly, nine companies have taken license for DTH (Direct to Home) service. Among them, seven have applied for renewing their licenses.

As per the National Broadcasting Regulations 2052 BS, an organization should begin its services within a year since the date it has acquired the license. If it fails to begin its services within that period additional six months time will be extended for the service resumption.

Similarly, two companies-Home TV operated by the Satellite Channel Pvt. Ltd and Dish Nepal operated by the Dish Media Network- have got licenses for installing earth station as well.

Home TV has applied at the Ministry for regular transmission after completing its test-transmission. The Dish Media Network has got license for test-transmission.

Likewise, Gorakhapatra National Daily is being published in 28 different languages and a sub-committee under the coordination of linguist Dr Madhav Prasad Pokharel has been formed for recommending the possibility of printing the newspaper in other languages if possible at a time when demand for publishing the Gorakhapatra National Daily in other languages has been raised.
