Though not in program, might be part of talks

Privatization of State TV Rai could be discussed, says Letta

Rome, June 20 - The possibility of privatizing Italy's State TV Rai could be discussed by the government, Premier Enrico Letta said on Thursday. "The question of eventually privatizing Rai is not part of the government program presented, (but) we will discuss it, talk about it," Letta told foreign journalists at a press conference in Rome. Currently, Italians pay an obligatory annual TV licence fee to help finance Rai. According to a survey last year by the Censis research agency, the State TV tax is the most detested by Italians, who criticize the broadcaster on a wide variety of grounds.
