Restriction on satellite TV equipment

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission has banned the importation of satellite television equipment without permission.

However, such equipment to view government-approved television channels is still permitted, said TRC chief Anusha Pelpita.

The Customs director has been informed about the decision, he told Hiru Radio.

Mr. Pelpita has said that the decision has been taken because national security could be compromised through foreign satellite TV channels.
