Another setback for DTT launch
Rzeczpospolita reports that Witold Kolodziejksi, the head of the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT), is threatening to write to the country’s PM in protest at decision by the Government Legislation Centre to reject licensing conditions proposed by the regulator, according to Broadband TV News.
In the Centre’s view, they do not comply with the terms of existing broadcast legislation.
Without an agreement between the two, the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) cannot allocate frequencies to radio stations on DTT multiplexes and if this happens it is unlikely that the DTT launch would be in September.
Poland launched its first multiplex last September, but it is operating on a trial basis in a limited number of locations.
