Under the existing law, the broadcasts in the Kurdish language will be limited to 45 minutes a day and four hours a week for television. For radio, it will be limited to one hour a day and five hours a week.
EU-hopeful Turkey began Kurdish-language broadcasts on state television in 2004. The move broke a taboo that had banned Kurdish language for nearly 15 years.
Turkey has a 12-million-strong Kurdish minority. Authorities have long feared that granting the Kurds cultural rights would fuel separatism.
