Zon can bid for DTT pay-TV channels

February 28, 2008

Zon Multimedia SGPS will be allowed to bid to operate pay-TV channels in Portugal’s digital terrestrial television (DTT) tender if it does so as a minority stakeholder in a consortium, according to a director at telecoms regulator Anacom. According to the Anacom director, Zon has been excluded from bidding on its own for the pay-TV DTT tender as it has a dominant position in the market through its cable TV operation, but will be allowed to participate if it holds a minority stake in a bidding consortium.
