Vodafone Germany suspends China TV from cable after licence withdrawn

BERLIN, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Vodafone Germany said it had suspended distribution of China’s state-owned CGTN television on its cable services after authorities had withdrawn a licence for its distribution.

The operator said in a statement on Friday that it hoped to resume distribution, but needed a valid licence to do so.

“We are currently in discussions regarding the withdrawal of the licence both with regional media authorities and the broadcaster’s representatives in order to clarify the legal situation,” the company said. (Reporting by Thomas Escritt, editing by Kirsti Knolle)
