German authority withdraws two Turkish licences

The Commission for Approval and Oversight (ZAK) has withdrawn the licences of two Turkish language channels from Euro 7 Television and Marketing GmbH. Kanal 7 INT and TVT, which are broadcasting under licences from the state of Hessen, have effectively had these licences revoked.

According to the authority, the broadcaster did not comply with the licence conditions and there seemed to be no guarantee that they could do so in the near future.
