Regulators approve new media bill
Arcep the telecoms and postal regulator and the broadcast regulator CSA have both given their approval to the recent government bill on the future of television. However both the CSA and Arcep have expressed their reservations to some of the proposals. Arcep expressed reservations over the proposal to award existing analogue broadcasters with extra capacity after analogue switch-off and the CSA have issues over the proposed switch off process.
The next step is for the Council of State to give its opinion on the bill by the end of this week (21st July).
