The Council for Cable and Satellite Broadcasting threatened to suspend Shelanu TV’s license, pending a review by the council.

The license of Shelanu TV, the Hebrew-language Christian evangelical TV channel which has been accused of seeking to proselytise in Israel, has been suspended.

Shelanu TV, owned by parent company God TV, began broadcasting in Israel on the Hot cable network at the end of April after it received a license from the Council for Cable and Satellite Broadcasting earlier this year.
