Ofcom allows Pay TV services on all multiplexes
Following a public consultation, which ended on January 11th 2006, Ofcom has announced that the previous restrictions allowing only Free-to-view services on multiplexes B, C and D have now been lifted.
The BBC and National Grid Wireless were awarded the multiplexes in 2002 following the collapse of ITVdigital and this decision now allows them to have Pay-TV services on these multiplexes once again. National Grid Wireless currently owns multiplexes C And D while the BBC owns Multiplex B as Free-to-View Ltd.
