CNN Channel Back To Russia
March 25, 2015 13:06

CNN channel has received a universal license on broadcasting in Russia, as the spokesman of the Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications Vadim Ampelonsky reported. His words were quoted by “Interfax” on Tuesday, March 24. “The order on granting a universal broadcasting license to CNN is signed” - the representative of the agency told. “On March 23 we received a license from the Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications concerning television broadcasting of the channel for up to 10 years” - a source in the American company earlier reported to “Izvestia”.

The fact of the license issuance was confirmed also by the head of Roskomnadzor Aleksandr Zharov. CNN Channel stopped broadcasting on the territory of the Russian Federation on December 31, 2014. Speaking about the reasons for the decision, the media managers of the TV Company told that it was associated with the changes in the Russian legislation on the media, but did not specify them exactly. The experts suggested that they meant the 20 percent limitation of the share of foreign capital in the media assets from January 1, 2016.

The management of Roskomnadzor predicted the rapid return of the channel to Russia. CNN was founded by Ted Turner on June 1, 1980 and is a division of Turner Broadcasting System. The company was the first in the world to introduce the concept of broadcasting news around the clock. The channel has been broadcasting in Russia since the beginning of the 1990s. Until December 31, 1997 it was broadcasted on the “24th channel” (the decimeter channel which is now occupied by the TV channel “Perets” – the note of “Lenta.Ru”), after that - as part of the license of the satellite operator “NTV Plus” on cable channels. In February 2015 CNN applied for renewal of broadcasting on the territory of the Russian Federation and was registered anew 10 days later.
