Italian parliament votes against preserving analogue frequency

The new Italian government has had its decree to allow TV channel Rete 4 to keep its analogue TV channel blocked. This means that Rete 4 will have to distribute its channel via satellite releasing its current terrestrial frequency to Centro Europa 7.
The unsuccessful decree was seen by some observers as an attempt to bypass a European Court of Justice sentence that recognised the right of Italian broadcaster Centro Europa 7 to the frequency.
