Denmark issues 220 local TV transmission licences

The Danish Radio and television Board (Radio-og tv-nævnet) has issued 220 new local digital TV transmission licences, reports Broadband TV News.
Three hundred and three applications for licences were received and these were judged on the breadth of the proposed content, whether it was original production and the financial capability to follow through.
The new stations can become active after the 31st October when analogue switch off has taken place. They will occupy space in Multiplex 1 and will provide local programmes concentrating on community issues.
