DTT plans at critical stage

The consortium called OneVision chosen to develop DTT in Ireland has been told by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) to progress with its plans as a matter of urgency.
The BAI has written to the consortium requesting that contracts be signed within the next couple of weeks. The expected date for signature passed in September.
One of the sticking points for OneVision is said to be the E20 million guarantee being sought by RTE who want to ensure that commercial backers will stay with the project.
OneVision is backed by Eircom, TV3, Arqiva and Setanta.
