Cablers sing for toons

French cablers, worried by the increasing competition from pan-European satellite broadcasters, petitioned June 15 the Gallic television authorities for permission to carry the banned TNT-Cartoon web.

The Assn. of French Cable Operators asked the Superior Council for Audiovisual (CSA) “to not refuse the subscribers of our cable networks access to the channels that are otherwise freely available to be received.”

The all-powerful CSA banned TNT from French cable for not meeting European production quotas in September 1993.
