DTT platform assessment released

The National Communications Authority (NCAH) has released an assessment of the performance to date of Antenna Hungaria’s DTT platform.
The NCAH is critical of the Antenna Hungaria’s service, which was launched in July 2008. Its report says that the DTT platform has not contributed sufficiently to competitiveness in the television market and has also failed to reach distribution agreements with broadcasters. So far commercial operators from the analogue platform have not joined and only public service broadcasts are available on the digital platform. In addition the NCAH notes that the digital coverage is also lower than expected.
At present the existing DTT platform comprises of two DTT and one DVB-H multiplex.
