Burma to Get Three New Free TV Channels

13 February 2013

Burma’s state television agency plans to launch three new free TV channels by September, according to a report by the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB). One channel will focus on covering proceedings in Burma’s Parliament, while the other two will specialize in content related to agriculture and literature, the report said. Currently, Burma has both private and state-owned television channels, but only those run by the government are available free of charge. State officials say the government is considering a new broadcast law, but it is unclear when the bill will be passed.
