Bulgaria opens new DTT tender

January 25, 2013

Bulgaria’s telecom watchdog has started the procedure for a tender for another multiplex after Brussels referred the country to EU court over the assignment of digital broadcast spectrum.

Bulgaria decided at the end of December 2011 to hold a tender for yet another multiplex, its seventh, which local reports criticised.

The European Commission demanded that Bulgaria publish the conditions of the tender as soon as possible, so that potential new entrants can prepare their applications, be selected and enter the market before the date set for the analogue switch off, September 1st 2013.
