Pay-DTT platform review this summer
The CSA has announced that it is to review the Pay-DTT platform and will launch a consultation on the subject possibly during this summer.
The review has been prompted by the return of Pay-TV licences from Canal J and AB. They have said that an insufficient subscriber base and competition from the free-to-air DTT platform had been the major reasons for the licences to be returned.
The CSA hasn’t yet decided how to re-allocate the licences but is reported to have said that they will not be issued for free-to-air use.
