After the Greek government limited the number of television channels authorized to broadcast nationwide to four, this has caused an uproar among the television journalists concerned
Four rough channels, Alpha TV, Star TV, Epsilon, Mega, as well as the smaller ART channel, must cease operations within ninety days, effectively by the end of November. The nerves of the journalists, cameramen, sound technicians, video technicians and other production assistants who are threatened with unemployment are on edge. The entire opposition finds fault with the government’s actions.
