Anacom drafts repeal of PT commercial licence

The Portuguese communications regulator Anacom has prepared a draft resolution to withdraw Portugal Telecom’s (PT) commercial DTT license.
The previously entered into agreement required PT to launch pay-DTT services on 5 national multiplexes by the end of January 2010. PT failed to do so and instead negotiated to change to its license conditions to allow for the launch of free-to-air HD services.
The draft resolution is open for comment for 20days, a period which ends on the 1st March. During this time interested parties can make representations on the decision for discussion before the draft document becomes official.
PT already operates the countries free to air DTT platform.
