DTT restructuring in Sweden

The Swedish government is referring the structure of Sweden’s digital terrestrial network to the council on legislation according to an article on the broadbandtvnews website.
The report says that the DTT platform is likely to be opened up to other providers who want to offer pay services following concerns raised by the European commission.
Boxer has been the sole provider of pay DTT services on the platform for the last eight years and currently has around 700,000 subscribers.
The probable outcome is that Boxer will maintain its hold on the marketing of the DTT packages to the public but other providers will also be able to sell their channels direct to the public.
