Bulgaria delays DSO

September 4, 2013

Bulgaria’s government has yet again extended the deadline for the country’s digital switchover.Originally set for September 1st 2013, the new deadline has been set for November 1st.

The news comes just days after the EU’s Court of Justice initiated proceedings against Bulgaria over the assignment of digital broadcast spectrum. Eight months after Brussels referred Bulgaria to the EU court over the controversial tenders for the operation of what will be the country’s DTT multiplexes, the country still has no official position.

Officials recently admitted they can’t say when Bulgaria’s official position will be ready and presented to the European Commission.
