Lithuania’s Radio and Television Commission (LRTK) has withdrawn a licence granted to Viasat Broadcasting’s Tele-3.

According to a statement published by the regulator, Tele-3 had been required to start broadcasting 3+ in February 2009 but secured permission to put the date back to January 1 this year.

Its failure to meet the new deadline has resulted in withdrawal of the licence for 3+.

Tele-3 currently broadcasts TV3 and TV6 in Lithuania.
