DTT award challenge progresses

The legal actions brought about by failed bidders in Ukraine’s DTT tender are to be considered in a single case by the Kiev Administrative Court.
This follows a decision by a panel of judges in response to an application from the defendant, the National Council on Radio and Television according to local reports.
The actions are by TVi, Info 24, TVi Kultura, Malyatko TV and TRK Era.
Although the case in Kiev pertains to licence awards on four national DTT multiplexes, a separate case on regional DTT licences is also being heard in the court.
Cases against the national awards are also being heard in Donetsk and Crimea.
