“In 2014 the Public Radio and Television Company maintained the policy adopted in the previous years but increased the number of social-economic, cultural and educational programs,” President of the Public Radio and Television Company of Armenia Ruben Jaghinyan said at the National Assembly as he presented a report on the budget allocations in 2014.
“We have worked towards expanding ties with international structures and foreign TV companies. The coverage of the satellite broadcasting of the Public TV and Radio has been broadened. The Public TV has launched a new webpage. All in all, 3 billion 97 million AMD was allocated for the activity of the Public TV and Radio Company in 2014,” Ruben Jaghinyan said.
He added that the deadline for switching to digital broadcasting has been moved from July 1st to January 1st. “The digitization was a difficult process, which required years,” he said.
