An end to the dispute between RTL Group and Hungarian government over a controversial advertising tax introduced last summer may finally be in sight.

Several local media say that RTL Group has confirmed that has been meeting with government officials to discuss the tax, which in the broadcaster’s view unfairly targets the company.

However, there has been no confirmation of one report, carried by, that said the government was asking RTL stop unfavourable coverage of its policies and to replace its head in Hungary Dirk Gerkens before it would consider reducing the tax.
