Cuba Criticizes US Efforts to Sell TV Marti Programming to Commercial Miami Station

Cuba is criticizing recent efforts by U.S.-funded TV Marti to bring its anti-Castro programming to Cuban viewers.

Cuba's Communist Party newspaper Granma, in an article published Tuesday, said Cuban authorities will take the measures to block the TV Marti programming broadcast on a Miami local television station.

The station, WPMF-TV, can be received by Cubans with satellite dishes, although such devices are illegal in Cuba.

Radio and TV Marti announced in December that it would pay to have its programming broadcast on Spanish-language stations in Miami that are received by illegal satellite dishes in Cuba.
