Radio Caracas Televisión, the network forced off the public airwaves in May by President Hugo Chávez’s government, restarted broadcasts on cable. The network, called RCTV, is expected to reach no more than a third of households, leaving only state-controlled and private broadcasters that are not explicitly critical of Mr. Chávez’s policies with national audiences. RCTV said it would continue a legal battle to return to the public airwaves, pressing ahead with claims that the nonrenewal of its license was an attempt to stifle dissent by the government.
