Reorganisation of DTT multiplexes and more local licences available

To allow for the launch of a new HD DTT service the CSA has agreed to plans for the re-arrangement of two of France’s multiplexes to make space for it.
A Pay HD service is to be launched on multiplex R4 following the move of AB1 and NT1 from R4 to R6. Full item: CSA website
In a separate move the CSA is inviting local broadcasters to tender for DTT licences in four new areas, Bayonne, Dijon, Lille and Meaux.
Applications must be submitted by the 16 May 2008.
