Pay DTT debate continues

Despite earlier announcements in August, that the government had not plans for Pay-DTT in the near future, it looks like this stance has now been modified.
In a recent statement by the Minister of Industry, Tourism and Commerce, Miguel Sebastian, the position of the government has been further refined.
He said that the launch of Pay-DTT services would require a consensus amongst broadcasters and that he thought this could be achieved during 2009. However he saw no need for urgency to resolve this issue and further emphasised how important it was to have many free to view programmes available on the DTT platform.
