BAI to seek DTT content providers

The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) is to seek expressions of interest from content providers interested in joining the country’s DTT platform, reports Broadband TV News.
An official announcement from BAI is expected in the next few weeks.
Public broadcaster RTÉ is expected to launch the Saorview digital network in May this year. It follows a troubled period that saw the franchise to operate commercial TV services on the DTT platform rejected by three separate parties.
Analogue switch off will take place in 2012.
