CSA seeks guidance from government on digital dividend
The broadcast regulator for the French-speaking Community, CSA, is seeking guidance from the Belgium government on how to use frequencies allocated to Belgium in the Geneva 2006 Plan.
It has proposed three models on how the frequencies could be used:
A mixture of DVB-T and DVB-H services with the public service broadcaster, RTBF, serving as the network operator.
A mixture of DVB-T and DVB-H services with one or more parties serving as the network operator.
The provision of DVB-H services with one or more parties serving as the network operator.
In all of these models, services would be provided by both public service and commercial broadcasters.
The CSA recommends that the government also provide guidance on the frequencies available for the French-speaking Community and open a tender for the designation of a network operator.
