Most TV channels got licenses for their activities, the chairman of the National Council on TV and Radio Broadcasting Nushiravan Maherramli told Trend. He said, only 5 regional channels: В"LyankaranВ", В"KhayalВ", В"KhachmazВ", В"РђlternativaВ" and В"РђygyunВ" have not been issued licenses.

According to Maherramli, the problem of the “Khachmaz” TV is related to the financing from the state budget. The TV channel’s legal status must be changed. As for the “Lyankaran” TV channel the legal investigation has been conducted and some problems in its establishing have been revealed.

Some changes have been made in the establishing of the “Alternativa’ and “Hayal” TVs. These enterprises have been resold to others, which means violation of the law and by selling the license it loses its legal force.

As for the TV channels broadcasting nationwide (В"ANSВ", В"LiderВ" and В"SpaceВ"-TV), Maherramli said, there are some problems with their documents. В"They have been given time for the settlement of their problems. We will not make warnings any more. For each violation they will be fined”, the Council chairman stressed.
