Radio and television

Radio and television

On implementing the democracy principle, the right of information gathering and spreading is guaranteed for Lithuanian mass media. The said right may be restricted in exceptional cases, i.e. when such information gathering and spreading may violate (or violates) the right of other persons to private life and (or) other personal non-property rights.

Radio and television are the particularly important means of mass media for the community and its cultural life. Upon applying certain techniques required for access to a large audience, the community is duly and well-timely informed on the most important and topical political, economic, cultural and social events in Lithuania; in addition, various scientific programmes, movies and cinema news and other interesting information are provided.

In Lithuania, upon applying certain techniques required for providing a certain service, each person is provided an opportunity to watch TV-programmes of all channels (both the national and of foreign states). If a person wishes to use TV-services, he (she) should apply to relevant enterprises involved in provision of them both to private persons and business subjects (legal entities). Broad opportunities of watching TV-channels and certain direct programmes online are provided as well.

Radio communication services are available throughout the entire territory of Lithuania by using receivers that may be made as individual devices or integrated in a car, TV-set and so on. Broadcasts of radio stations are accessible as well. In Lithuania, over 30 radio stations operate. However, their accessibility is not the same in different regions of the country, because radio interference hinders broadcasting of programmes of some radio stations in certain parts of the territory of Lithuania. Of course, the said problem does not arise, if broadcasts of a certain radio station may be listened online.
