Austria starting DVB-T2 services

ORS is to launch a new digital terrestrial pay-TV platform (DTT) in Austria called simpliTV. It will contain around 40 TV channels of which 20-30% will be in HD.

For reception, viewers require a DVB-T2 receiver which will be available in retail stores or a flat-screen TV set with an integrated DVB-T2 tuner and a CI+ interface into which a simpliTV conditional access module has to be inserted. For technology and sales, ORS has arranged partnerships with Kathrein and HB Austria.

ORS will give further details of participating channels, coverage and technical aspects in March 2013. The free-of-charge current DTT line-up will continue to be offered by the technical services subsidiary of public broadcaster ORF in parallel with simpliTV.
