How do we watch TV?
Households typically use five television broadcasting platforms: analogue cable, digital cable (IPTV), digital terrestrial (paid or free) and satellite using a satellite dish.
What you need to know about television subscriber agreements
Operators providing subscription services such as the businesses offering television subscriptions, are required to develop their own general contracting terms (GTC), which must be communicated to each subscriber before contract conclusion.
Each year the Media Council of NMHH determines which media service providers are considered to have substantial influence (abbreviated as JBE in Hungarian). Identifying these service providers is important because the law imposes additional obligations of public interests on these media.

Protection of minors – age rating
As parents, grandparents or even as adults caring for the neighbour’s children, we should know what is on TV when the children are sitting in front of it. In the corner of the screen as well as in the cinema programmes, coloured circles help us all in that regard.
Nowadays, modern televisions and set-top-boxes offer various options to ensure that children can access only channels and programmes we would like them to.
