Big interest in Malta digital TV trials

The operators of a planned digital TV service in Malta have described as overwhelming the public response to a request for participation in Digital Terrestrial TV trials.
Multiplus’ website received more than 4,000 expressions of interest in the first week, company officials said.
Multiplus will be operating a wireless Digital Terrestrial Television (DTTV) network using the DVB-T system in the near future. Public trials are expected to start in the coming weeks.
“We are extremely grateful for the positive response we’ve received,” Jan Spiteri, CEO of Multiplus said. “However, we would also like to point out that anyone who is not included in the trials will be first in line when our service is launched. Meanwhile, we encourage all interested parties who have not yet registered to do so via our website.”
Test sites are currently being selected and Multiplus will be informing all those who have been chosen by the end of this week.
Each participant will be supplied with a fully interactive set-top box as well as a smart card and feedback will be requested by Multiplus on a weekly basis.

The information provided comes from many sources and whilst DVB believe it to be correct we cannot guarantee its accuracy.
