FICORA issues reminder to SuomiTV for violation of audio-subtitling and subtitling service obligation

The programmes of YLE, MTV3, Nelonen and SuomiTV must be accompanied by an audio-subtitling and subtitling service by virtue of the annual percentage values referred to in the Government Decree. FICORA has issued a reminder to SuomiTV for violating the audio-subtitling and subtitling service obligations.

FICORA collected data from YLE, MTV3, Nelonen and SuomiTV on how they had implemented audio-subtitling and subtitling services in 2011. SuomiTV had not implemented audio-subtitling and subtitling services at all. The minimum values for 2011 were not quite achieved by YLE's audio-subtitling and MTV3's subtitling services either.

FICORA obliges SuomiTV to take immediate measures to implement audio-subtitling and subtitling services. FICORA also urges YLE and MTV3 to ensure that the requirements of the Decree are met in the future.

FICORA's conclusion on the implementation of audio-subtitling and subtitling services in 2011 and decisions (in Finnish).

The Government Decree 292/2011 (in Finnish)
