The approved ISP operators are allowed to show the internet broadcast of the satellite TV channels approved by the information ministry to only their customers.

However, the agreement, approval or release to broadcast a particular channel, content or program has to be collected from the concerned institutions, said the BTRC.

Recently some unscrupulous traders are illegally buying domains and showing IPTV through Facebook, YouTube channels which violates the Telecommunication Act, said the notice.
