More Broadcasters interested in the DTT platform
Interest in providing services on the DTT platform is growing in France and several broadcasters have announced plans to tender for capacity on platform once analogue switch-off (ASO) is completed.
The CSA has indicated previously that capacity will be available for two additional HD services and three SD services after the ASO. As a result of these forthcoming changes various groups have started detailing their plans.
Media group NRJ, would like to launch an HD service Chérie HD, that targets a female audience, whilst the media group Amaury and Alain Weill would each like to launch a sport service in high-definition, L’Équipe TV and RMC Sport.
The commercial broadcaster Canal+ also announced plans to launch a standard-definition service tentatively named Canal 20 while M6 would like to launch two new services, M6 Famille and a generalist service.
