DTT services in Mauritius could start in two months


An article in L’Express says that Free-to-air Digital Terrestrial Television services could start in Mauritius¬†during the next two months.
Doordarshan, BBC World and TV5 would be among the six free services planned for launch on the single DTT multiplex, which has covered 70% of the territory with test transmissions since 2003.
Fareed Jangeerkhan, recently appointed as the new president of MBC has asked the government to extend this coverage to 90% of the territory and has also said that facilitating these new DTT services is his top priority.
Government plans to privatise the existing channels offered by MBC may delay the proposed DTT launch.
