DTT re-launch on November 30th 2005

Spain is ramping up for the re-launch of its Digital Terrestrial TV services on the 30th November.
Each commercial broadcaster currently on the analogue terrestrial platform will receive 3 DTT licences, so that as well as broadcasting digital versions of an existing service they will have two additional slots for new services.
Telecinco will offer a service devoted to fiction programmes and a sports service. Antena 3 will offer one children’s service and one service aimed at women while Sogecable will offer a news service and a music service.
Simulcasting of existing analogue TV transmissions and the new digital services are planned to continue until April 3rd 2010.
