CSA calls for HD DTT bids
February 1, 2008
France's broadcasting regulator, the Conseil supÃ©rieur de l’audiovisuel (CSA), has issued a call for bids to broadcast a High Definition pay-TV service on one of the country's digital terrestrial multiplexes.
The opportunity is available to all pay-TV services currently authorised on DTT who wish to replace their current Standard Definition broadcast with HD. Bids will be submitted by March 11 2008, with the CSA anticipating authorisation of the successful bidders in May 2008. The CSA wants broadcasts to commence as soon as possible thereafter.
