Free DTT network deployment

Malta has started the build of its “free to air” digital terrestrial network in preparation for analogue switch off in 2010. Until recently DTT services were Pay-TV only with services provided by GO, which offers around 50 channels to its 80,000 subscribers.
The new free to air DTT network is called “General Interest Objective (GIO) network” and it will offer 6 channels replacing those currently available on the analogue platform.
