The Media Council announced the winner of the Székesfehérvár small community frequency tender

Published: 4 May 2022

At this week's meeting, the Media Council of the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (the Media Authority) concluded that the sole tenderer, Alba Regia Műsorszolgáltató Kft., was the winner of the tender procedure for the use (in principle) of a small community radio facility in Székesfehérvár. The Council recognised Jazz Tv as a community media service at the request of the service provider.

The panel warned the service provider of Life TV for directly encouraging viewers to buy products of a small producer brand in a January programme entitled Keverd újra, Buday! (Mix again, Buday!), which featured a product placement. Also in January, in the programmes entitled Otthon neked (Home for You) and Fit Life , the channel invited viewers to buy products and use services from several companies sponsoring the programme, on three occasions, which was in violation of the law.

The full agenda of the weekly meetings of the Media Council is available on the Council’s website, together with the minutes of the sessions and all resolutions – the latest documents are published after the necessary certification and administration processes.
