CNMC fines Mediaset EUR 112,100 for watershed breach

Wednesday 14 January 2015 | 08:48 CET | News
Spain's communications regulator CNMC has fined the broadcaster Mediaset Spain a total of EUR 112,100 for showing the film "American Playboy" during an inappropriate its time slot. The film contained images of explicit sexual content but was shown on the channel Cuatro on a Saturday between 15.53 and 17.39, which is one of the so-called periods of enhanced protection, according to Spain's Audiovisual Act of 2010. Mediaset has two months in which to appeal against the fine before the National High Court.
