According to the State Committee of Uzbekistan for privatization, demonopolization and development of competition, 12 national TV channels of the National TV and Radio Company of Uzbekistan (NTRC), which are broadcasted in digital «DVB-T» format, must be in public access for all users of digital television.
In particular, social TV channels "Uzbekiston", "Yoshlar", "Toshkent", "Sport", "Oilaviy", "Bolajon", "Navo", "Madaniyat va ma'rifat", "Diyor", "Dunyo bo'ylab" , "Kinoteatr" and "Mahalla" have to be rebroadcasted free of charge.
But the result of the study by the Committee showed that several providers suspend the provision of the above channels on non-payment cases for their services.
On this fact, the Ministry of Development of Information Technologies and Communications of the Republic of Uzbekistan sent a letter to JSC "Uzbektelecom», LLC «UzdigitalTV», «MaksLayn» and «O'zbekistonKabelTelevideniyasi» about the broadcast of the above social free 12 channels, even if the balance of subscribers equals to zero.
