Mohammad Mahdi Esmaili, Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance, said on the sidelines of the government delegation meeting regarding the dispute between the TV and the home cinema network: “Our view of the home cinema network is opportunity-oriented.”
On the sidelines of the meeting of the government delegation, the Minister of Guidance, in response to a reporter’s question about the difference between broadcasting and home networks, said: The main policy of the government and the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution, the Supreme Council of Cyber Space, the Ministry of Guidance and Broadcasting is to look at the network as an opportunity. We have a home show and we support this network as one of the achievements of new technology in the field of movies and series. But it is possible that there are problems in this field as well as in any other department, such as our own ministry, in which we have problems.
Regarding facing these problems, Esmaili explained: Our foundation is that these problems will be solved. We do not like the threat-oriented view of these networks. All sets may have some bugs in their workflow that can be fixed.
In response to the question that when Sedavsima is faced with a drop in audience, shouldn’t it improve the quality of its programs, Minister of Guidance said: This question is related to Sedavsima and friends in this organization must have an answer for it. I want to say that based on opinion polls in recent years, home networks have been visibly successful in attracting audiences. This is an opportunity and basis for our support. The networks that were able to attract a high percentage of audience should be supported, while their problems should also be resolved.
