From David Del Valle in Madrid
Spanish competition authority CNMC has started legal proceedings against Mediaset for a possible breach of the Audiovisual law over advertising limits.
Two of its channels, Tele 5 and Cuatro, would have broken the legal advertising limit of 12 minutes per hour with Mediaset facing a fine of up to €100,000 for each violation.
The proceedings will take at least six months to be resolved with Mediaset having 15 days to make allegations.
