Iranian state broadcasting organization IRIB issue five licences to offer IPTV services last October, including one to MTN-Irancell, a local affiliate of South Africa’s MTN.
However, the licences were subsequently withdrawn amidst disagreements between IRIB and the country’s ministiry of telecommunications over whether the broadcaster was authorised to issue them in the first place.
New licences were granted in November to the same five companies to which they had initially been granted.
