One Vision awarded DTT licence

May 12, 2009

The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI) has awarded the digital terrestrial television (DTT) licence that was recently abandoned by Boxer to the One Vision consortium, made up of TV3, Setanta, Arqiva and Eircom. The consortium was the second-placed applicant for the DTT contracts, which were awarded last year.

In April it emerged that the Boxer consortium, which included Denis O'Brien's Communicorp, had withdrawn its application for the three DTT Multiplex contracts, which were rewarded following a competition between a number of consortia last year.
