Apart from obtaining a license, as stated above, the Broadcasting Business Act also controls the contents broadcast by a television business. As stated in Section 37, if the broadcasting of programmes contains contents that have the purpose of encouraging the overthrow of the current administration under the democratic form of government with the King as the Head of State, have the purpose of adversely affecting the security of the State, public order or the morals of the people, or are of an obscene nature, or cause serious deterioration of the mind or health of the people, such contents shall be prohibited from being broadcasted. It is the responsibility of the licensee to examine and terminate the broadcasting of any such content. The failure to do so may result in the immediate termination of broadcasting by NBTC. Thus, it is also the responsibility of OTT TV providers to examine and terminate the broadcasting of any such content, whilst NBTC reserves the right to immediately terminate any such broadcasting.
