URHOtv has been awarded a concession for its sports channel within Multiplex B, which has nationwide distribution. The channel has previously only been available on cable and over the internet.
MTV Oy, the Finnish network that holds the Canal+ brand in the country, has been granted space within Multiplex C for Canal+ Sport 2.
The two slots in Multiplex E have been awarded to SBS Finland and Sanoma Television. SBS will screen its Voice TV music channel, while Sanoma will launch a new pay basic channel Nelonen Maailma (Channel Four World).
