RTL 2 facing fines for porn

Web could receive up to $230K for violating German TV rules

BERLIN — Having been found guilty last week of disseminating pornography on the air, German web RTL 2 could face a legal fine of up to DM500,000 ($230,000).

While much of the latenight erotic programming on Teutonic TV would make most Americans blush, regulators here do make a distinction between “erotic” films and porno movies.

The Hessen state media authority investigated eight such titillating titles shown on the web and found that seven of them violated German TV’s ban on porn.

Watchdogs also blasted Rupert Murdoch’s TM3 for airing a strip show that employed Christian symbols in a questionable sexual content.
