On July 1 the National Commission on Television and Radio considered the bids submitted for broadcast licensing competitions in a number of Armenian regions. As it has been reported, the competitions were announced on March 22 with two packages of frequencies (see details in YPC Weekly Newsletter, March 18-24, 2005).
The package of 17 UHFs in the cities of Armenia (this time the license for these frequencies is held by “Akn” TV company) was claimed by only one bidder, “Armenia” TV company.
There was only one bidder for the second package of 9 FMs, too. This was “ArRadioInterContinental” that currently has a license for these frequencies.
The results of the competitions will be announced by NCTR on August 18.
At the same NCTR session on July 1 it was decided to grant “Teleport” LLC a license for cable broadcasting in all the communities of the capital. Previously, “Teleport” LLC did cable broadcasting only in one community – Malatia-Sebastia of Yerevan.
