Portugal to launch parliament TV

Iñaki Ferreras | 31-10-2012

Tapping into the political turmoil that has engulfed the country as budget cuts are made, a new TV channel dedicated to parliamentary sessions is to start in Portugal.

The new Canal Parlamento will begin transmission in December on the country’s digital terrestrial (DTT) network offering 12 hours of daily broadcasts, except for week-ends and when the parliament is in recess.
