Chapter IV Program Regulation
When planning or transmitting encrypted programs in accordance to regulation, system operators shall report their encryption techniques to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) for its joint approval with relevant central agencies, prior to transmission.
After an encrypted technique has been approved in accordance with the preceding Paragraph, if there is a change in encryption facilities or if the encrypted program cannot be effectively transmitted, the MOTC may notify the system operator to submit a new report for approval within a specified period of time. In the event that the system operator fails to do so within the specified period of time or if the new encryption technique is not approved, the encryption technique approved in the preceding Paragraph shall become void.
The usable channels mentioned in Paragraph 3 of Article 42 of this Act shall refer to the planned channels in the operations plan excluding the special channels mentioned in Item 2 of Article 25, and Article 56 of this Act.
The programs mentioned in Paragraph 4 of Article 42 of this Act shall refer to the in-house program production of the system operators.
The ratio of the domestically produced programs mentioned in Article 43 of this Act shall be computed according to the total number of hours of program transmission on the system operators’ usable channels.
