Digital Dividend report submitted

The Parliamentary committee, set up to look at the re-allocation of frequencies after the analogue switch in off in 2011, has submitted its report to the Prime Minister.
Its proposal responds to calls from the Broadcast industry to retain the frequencies released by ASO to extend the availability of HDTV to 95% of the population, extend the availability of mobile television and allow the digitisation of local channels.
In 2012, after ASO it recommends that 11 multiplexes covering 95% of the population and 2 DVB-H multiplexes (32 channels) with 80% coverage are provided.
