Romania – Ready to launch DTT trials
Romania’s National Audiovisual Council (CNA) will allocate frequency (Channel 54) for a six-month DTT trial in Bucharest.
In addition, a second frequency (Channel 59) is also likely to be made available to commercial broadcasters for DTT tests starting in April or May 2006. The CNA will select the broadcasters to participate in the test on the basis of their content and ratings.
The Digitalisation Council was established in July 2005 in order to source frequencies for a third national DTT network. The network will be reserved for up to 6 commercial broadcasters with national and regional coverage.
Romania has fixed 2012 as its date for analogue switch-off.
