Hurriyet reports that this follows the two services complying with new online broadcasting rules. It adds that a number of local streaming services, including Fizy, TV8, Diyanet TV and Powerapp Music, have also received 10-year licences for the same reason. Up until now, both local and international online content providers have operated in Turkey with temporary licences.
Meanwhile, Daily Sabah says that over 600 institutions, including the local streaming platforms Puhu TV and Blu TV, applied for the licences.
Licence holders do not respect the guidelines will be given 30 days to change their content or face having the licences suspended for three months and later cancelled.
Legislation enacted in August 2019 gives RTÜK the authority to regulate online radio, TV and on-demand broadcasting in Turkey.
