The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has been forced to back down from its highly publicised battle to try to censor, control and tax streaming content over the internet.
The telecom regulator will once again retreat from the over-the-top regulatory framework it proposed earlier, doing a U-turn on the categorisation of OTT video-on-demand services as a broadcast business.
"Video-on-demand on OTT platforms is not a broadcast business," ACM Thares Punsri, chairman of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), told the Bangkok Post, marking a radical departure from previous resolutions.
The latest move means the NBTC is again backing down from the OTT regulatory framework it proposed in April.
