HD over DVB-T2 for ORS
Broadcast network operator ORS has submitted an application for the licence to operate two DTT multiplexes.
The multiplexes Mux E and Mux D will have nationwide coverage and ORS would use the DVB-T2 standard to provide up to 30 TV channels some of which would be in HD.
The tender closed for applications on the 15th November and if ORS wins, it plans to start services in 2012.
The current DVB-T offer includes public and private national broadcasters ORF1, ORF2, ATV, Puls4, ServusTV, 3sat, ORF3 and ORF Sport Plus, as well as a few regional stations.
Analogue switch-off in Austria was completed in June 2011.
