Germany has banned RT DE (the German language edition of the international Russian state-funded broadcaster formerly knows as Russia Today). The official reason is that RT has no permit (and has not requested one), but the German press also mentions that the die Medienkommission sieht die Staatsferne nicht gewährleistet (the media commission does not see distance to the state guaranteed), suggesting that they probably wouldn't get a permit if they applied for one (instead, RT DE had applied for a permit in Serbia and in Luxembourg). Meanwhile, France24 and Voice of America are allowed in Germany, but they broadcast in English (the English language edition of RT appears to be allowed as well). Is (was) RT DE the only foreign state-funded broadcaster to broadcast in Germany in the German language, or are there others? The BBC ended their German language broadcasts in 1999. There appears to be a TRT Deutsch from Turkey, but I don't know if they are state funded or have a German language broadcast in Germany.
The deeper question I'm after: is being funded by a foreign government sufficient to be (probably) ineligible for getting a permit to broadcast in Germany in German, or is there also a criterion related to the content of the broadcast or (alleged) direct government influence on the content?
(The BBC had a German edition during World War II, but that situation was quite different)
