Service fees were recently introduced by satellite television service providers operating in the Czech Republic. The Czech Telecommunication Office have initiated administrative proceedings regarding suspicion of committing administrative offences under the Consumer Protection Act (deceptive business practices) and under the Act on Electronic Communications (business in the field of electronic communications without proper notification). The administrative offence is of the company introducing fees, failing to inform its customers about the change in general terms and conditions for using the services in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Act on Electronic Communications. Administrative proceedings might result in a penalty of up to CZK 25 million.
