Government awards DTT license

The government has announced that it has awarded NTV with its DTT licence. It is likely that DTT services will begin in the summer of 2007.
NTV, an organisation set up by NRK, TV2 and Telenor, had been the only contender for the available DTT licence. As per the proposal made by NTV, one multiplex will offer free-to-air DTT services while two additional multiplexes will offer pay DTT services.
It is expected that Norway will launch its DTT services using the MPEG-4 video compression standard.
