In 2017 the Malta Communications Authority (MCA) mandated ‘must carry’ obligations on GO’s Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) platform in addition to retaining ‘must carry’ obligations on Melita’s Cable TV platform. Since 2017 the number of subscribers of these two pay-TV platforms has continued to increase.
'Must carry’ obligations are subject to periodic review to keep them up to date with technological and market evolution, and to ensure that they continue to be proportionate to the objectives to be achieved.
The MCA is consulting on the review of 'must-carry' obligations. The consultation will run from the 6th December 2022 to the 18th January 2023.
