New rule to regulate YouTube channels and OTT platform in Nepal

8th March 2022
"YouTube and other OTT platforms have been brought under the purview of law for the first time in Nepal."

The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology has made arrangements to regulate and monitor the broadcasting through YouTube channels and the internet by making the 11th amendment to the National Broadcasting Regulation 2052 BS.

The government has made it a legal requirement to obtain permission to operate Internet-based television services. 

Now platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube Premium, Hotstar, Sony Liv will also have to take permission to provide services in Nepal

The government has also defined online television as a means of broadcasting audio-visual programs on the Internet, as well as various OTT platforms, including YouTube.

The government has published new regulations in the Gazette and as defined in sub-rule 2 of rule 2, OTT is the service provided through the internet without using any program DTH only or satellite television.

Similarly, the act of producing a regular audio-visual program produced by a person himself has been described as online television.

The OTT Service Provider has to maintain a record of each customer’s transaction on the ‘Customer Management System’ servers. Such details should be made available to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology every month.

Such companies will be able to become members or customers within Nepal only after obtaining a license and setup a cache server locally.
