CNN Is Back
February 26, 2015 16:57


 The Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications will grant a permit to CNN allowing it to resume broadcasting in Russia until the end of the week.

“The new certificate of registration of CNN as a mass media in Russia is included into the corresponding order which is to be signed this week” – the press secretary of Roskomnadzor Vadim Ampelonsky told to Interfax on Tuesday.

After the signing of the order the certificate will be included into the package of documents for receiving a universal license for a TV channel which will allow CNN to resume broadcasting in Russia. In mid-February Ampelonsky told to RBC that the CNN International TV-company submitted an application for a universal license on broadcasting in Russia to Roskomnadzor. Then he said that the documents of CNN would undergo all necessary procedures, and after their completion a final decision would be made. Ampelonsky clarified that the universal license will allow the channel to broadcast via cable television.

Since the beginning of 2015 a law banning advertising on paid cable channels in Russia came into force. CNN could not abandon advertising provided by international broadcasting due to technical reasons, and at the end of 2014 the channel decided to stop broadcasting in Russia.

In early January the Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications conducted negotiations with CNN International, during which both parties expressed mutual interest in the renewal of broadcasting of the channel in Russia. The meeting also involved discussions of topical issues of licensing of broadcasting of other television channels of Turner Broadcasting (TBS) in Russia.

CNN channel has been broadcasting in Russia since late 1980s. After 1991 the channel was broadcast in Moscow around the clock. The owner of CNN and TBS is the American Time Warner which also owns HBO and Warner Brothers.
