First DTT Multiplex launch delay

The country’s first multiplex, set for launch on the 30th September, has been delayed.
Media reports quote Anna Strezynska, the president of the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE), as saying that the delay is down to broadcasters challenging the concessions they have received for the first multiplex.
Strezynska also said broadcasters were reluctant to release their analogue frequencies, knowing that they would face more competition in the digital sphere.
At present it is not know if the delay will also affect the launch of the second multiplex, which was planned to start operation early in 2010.
