DNA gets a 3rd multiplex
The Finnish authorities have awarded a third digital terrestrial television multiplex to DNA. The licence is for VHF multiplex C and will run until the 31st December 2016. This new licence complements its two previously multiplexes VHF A and VHF B which were awarded in 2009.
DNA’s current multiplexes reach around 80% of the country and it is expected that VHF C will cover a similar area by the end of 2012.
DNA launched its HDTV service using the DVB-T2 standard on the 1st January 2011.
The capacity of DNA’s VHF terrestrial network allows the broadcast of up to 11 high-definition, and 15 standard-definition channels.
