It is also worth remembering that in order for HBO to operate in Turkey, it must obtain an on-demand broadcasting license from the Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK). The regulation, which paves the way for RTÜK control for broadcasts made over the internet in Turkey and obliges these broadcasting platforms to obtain licenses, entered into force on September 1, 2019. At the end of a very controversial process in the public, the existing domestic digital broadcasting platforms, especially foreign online series and movie platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, made the necessary applications to RTÜK and received their relevant licenses.
