Spanish regulator fines RTVE for flouting ad ban

Monday 17 April 2017 | 14:49 CET | News
Spanish communications regulator CNMC announced it fined RTVE a total of EUR 222,600 for airing three advertising campaigns that breached current rules banning publicity on the state broadcaster. In its statement, the CNMC said RTVE's 'Reloj Clan Watch', 'Zowi, el robot de Clan' and 'Tableta Clan Motion Pro' campaigns represented an unlawful addition of the word Clan – the broadcasters children's channel – to consumer products advertised on La 1, La 2, Canal 24 Horas, Clan and Teledeporte between October 2016 and January 2017. The company has two months to lodge an appeal.
