The CSA have announced that four applications for the two planned HD TV channels were received by the August 20th deadline.
Three of the applications were for free to view HD channels and one for a Pay TV channel.
The free channels were proposed by Metropolis Television for a channel called M6 HD, TF1 for TF1 HD and AN NT SA for Terranova HD. Group Canal+ SA applied for the HD Pay TV channel.
A decision on the licence awards is expected in early December with HD launches expected during 2008. The two HD channels awarded are expected to be joined by a third HD channel which is being reserved for public broadcasting.
