Foreign TV channels with advertisements to be banned in Nepal
In line with Clean Feed Policy-2016 introduced by Nepali government last year, foreign channels, which are mostly Indian ones, will be barred from broadcasting in Nepal with advertisements.
The move is expected to boost Nepal's advertisement market and help Nepalese media to get more advertisements because foreign advertisers willing to cater Nepali consumers will have to invest in Nepal.
Subsequently, Nepali artists and other stakeholders to be used in creating an advertisement are expected to get more employment opportunities in the country. ■
