Local Analogue Switch off delayed
Although Spain’s DTT law required all local TV stations to have switched to digital broadcasting by January 1st, many still have to do so.
Despite the law many regional governments have not even invited broadcasters to tender for digital licences.
Francisco Pérez president of G-9, a group representing local broadcasters says that the Technical Plan which requires analogue switch-off to begin with local broadcasters is discriminatory.
Analogue switch-off of national channels is set for the 3rd April 2010.
