Public company launched to manage DTT switchover

The Serbian government has set up a public company to take over Serbia’s broadcast infrastructure from national broadcaster Radio-Televizija Srbije (RTS) and provide TV, radio and mobile signals throughout Serbia, as part of the country’s digital switchover plan. According to director Vladimir Homan, the new company is now in charge of all 250 transmitters once owned by RTS and will manage a complete overhaul of the system. Serbia plans to spend up to EUR 115 million on the switchover, with EUR 75 million to be allocated for new broadcasting equipment. The deadline for the switchover is April 2012.
