The Armenian parliament has approved amendments to the law regulating TV and radio broadcasting and reinstated the Public Television’s right to air commercial advertisements.
The Public TV will be entitled to air up to 5-minute ads during one-hour airtime. Social ads will be aired for free from 00:00 until 18:00. Gambling and nightclub ads are banned.
Moreover, starting from May 1 betting and slot machines will be banned to be placed at the gas station. According to the new law, which will come into force this autumn, gambling in Armenia will be restricted to special gambling zones.
