DTT multiplex allocation expected in 2014
In a letter to the European Commission, the Ministry of Transport and Communications has stated that it will open a tender for the operation of a DTT multiplex in 2014.
The Ministry also stated that it will propose amendments to the current electronic communications legislation to allow companies with broadcast interests outside of Bulgaria to participate in the tender.
Previously, two licences to operate DTT multiplexes had been awarded to HannuPro and Towercom. However, these licence allocations have been questioned by the European Commission which opened an infringement procedure against Bulgaria.
